Appointment as the Adjoining Owners' Surveyors16 January

The Building Surveying team were delighted to be appointed as surveyors for the Adjoining Owners with regard to a party wall. The client's neighbour is a large nineteenth century mews building in the West End which was subject to a major building development.

The notifiable works listed by the Building Owner included substantial excavations extending 30 metres underground to accommodate a next generation proton therapy centre. Such works involved a number of potential issues for the neighbouring building and therefore Keningtons acted on behalf of the Adjoining Owners with regard to a party wall in order to advise and protect their interests in accordance with the Party Wall etc. Act.1996.
