If you live in one of the Inner London Borough areas where this law doesn’t apply, then you can hire a Party wall Surveyor to make sure your walls are up to scratch. In order to get a Party wall Surveyor to do this work, you need to have a list of all the wall repairs that need to be done on your house. Once this is complete, you can call a Party wall Surveyor and arrange for him to inspect your walls.
If the Party wall Surveyor finds that any repairs are necessary to be made, then he will take the work forward with the contractors that you have chosen to do the work. You will find the cost of the repairs will be much cheaper than they would have been if they had taken your wall apart themselves. If you find it impossible to find enough local contractors to do the work, then you can take the risk and go with a specialist Party wall Surveyor. He will usually charge a fee for his services.
