Party Wall Surveying Fees and Costs
Further Party Wall Surveying Costs for Consideration
Here at Stokemont, if we are acting as a Building Owner’s Surveyor our costs will always be fixed. However, it is important to bear in mind that there can be instances that there are unexpected costs.
Please note that none of these costs would be costs or fees payable to Stokemont and would instead be as follows:
In situations of structurally complex works, or works of a high risk. It is likely that an Adjoining Owner’s Surveyor will request the input of an advising engineer. Their role will be to review the works from the perspective of the adjoining owner’s property, ensuring the risk is as low as it can be.
Their costs tend to start around the £500 mark.
In the unlikely event of a dispute between the Building Owner’s Surveyor and Adjoining Owner’s Surveyor. The Third Surveyor may be called upon to resolve the matter, thereby enabling the process to move ahead smoothly.
Their costs tend to start around the £800 mark.
This tends to be required for structurally complex works, or works of a very high risk. The procedure will result in the Adjoining Owner’s property being monitored throughout the duration of the works to detect movement early, addressing it before it becomes a major structural concern.
These costs tend to start around the £1,000 mark.
Security for Expenses
This will see a sum of money held on account to protect an Adjoining Owner’s property against unfinished works and future damage. This tends to be reserved for structurally complex works, or works of a very high risk. Upon completion of the works, the sum will then be returned to the Building Owner.
Security costs tend to start around the £2,500 mark.
Adjoining Owner Surveyor Costs
These fees are the responsibility of the Building Owner and rather than being a fixed cost, tend to based off the Party Wall Surveyor’s hourly rate applied to the amount of reasonable time spent in agreeing the Party Wall Award.
These costs tend to start around the £800 mark.
Making Use Payment
If the proposed works include the making use or enclosure onto a wall that the Adjoining Owner has built. The Building Owner will need to compensate them for half the cost of the wall, as they are now gaining the benefit of it as part of their proposed construction works.
These costs tend to start around £150 per square metre.
In the unfortunate event of damage being caused as a result of the Party Wall works, the Building Owner will be liable for any repair and making good costs . The Adjoining Owner is also within their rights to request their own contractor repair, for which the Building Owner will need to pay for.
In any event, we will ensure that you are fully aware of these costs well in advance of them being incurred .

I had a great experience with Stokemont who recently carried out a full building survey on a house we are buying. We had an extremely thorough and detailed report sent to us I’d recommend Stokemont to anyone needing a survey.
Thoroughly recommend Stokemont! Professional and knowledgeable. We had a few problems but Stokemont’s experience and advice helped us find the best solution to the problem and moved us forward with no delays. They were quick to respond and always kept us in the loop with the process. Will definitely be using their services again in the future and recommending them to friends/family. Thank you again!
We worked with Stokemont for a RICS survey and have only positive things to say. Thorough, clear, professional, and took time to explain findings in details. Would definitely recommend.
Stokemont was extremely prompt in their responses at every stage and we were assisted on every occasion when needed. The delivery target met our very tight deadline requirements. Will definitely recommend without any hesitation.
