Party Wall Award Protection

This house in Woodcote Valley Road , South Croydon was demolished following some very poor and defective building work. The neighbour’s adjacent semi detached house is still standing as can be seen . It was vital to have a Party Wall Award in place and in the absence of such , this disaster was allowed to happen . The house collapsed trapping a builder inside. Hopefully, all will be resolved soon and the property will be rebuilt. Meanwhile, significant urgent protective and remedial works are required to the neighbour’s property . If the Adjoining Owner had only engaged a firm such as ours at the outset and full Party Wall Award protection had been put in place , this probably would never have happened.  Brian Gale Surveyors has many years’ experience as Party Wall Surveyors, so should you require any advice regarding the Party Wall Act 1996, we would be delighted to assist.
