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:

Advising Engineer

Advising Engineer

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.

Third Surveyor

Third Surveyor

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.

Movement Monitoring

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

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.

Damage

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 have experienced an excellent service from Bradley. His knowledge and expertise have been invaluable as well as his professional courtesy to make himself readily available to guide us through the process.

Bradley at Stokemont has been extremely helpful and professional. We had some potential issues with our neighbours but he put our minds at rest and talked us through the options as well as going above and beyond in our personal circumstance. Having used a few party wall surveyors in my own professional capacity I thought Stokemont had the good balance of the right advice and looking after our interests. Would definitely look to them for any future Party Wall Matters.

Great experience with Stokemont surveyors so far, in helping us move forward with our home renovation project. I spoke to a few surveyors before deciding to go with Stokemont. Bradley's knowledge, experience and professionalism gave me the confidence that I had found a company I could work with.

I am removing a Chimney breast from my Semi-detached home, and Bradley from Stokemont talked me through all the options (couldn't believe how many ways this could go) involved with serving a Party Wall Notice. It took less than 48 hours from me speaking with Bradley, to serving the party wall, and then my neighbour had it returned in less than a week after that. Simple, efficient and easy. Will 100% recommend their services.

HC 08/03/21

A fantastic, efficient and honest service from Stokemonts Bradley Mackenzie. He was clear, transparent and very helpful dealing with our party wall matter. He came as a recommendation and will be my recommendation if anyone ever asks me for a Party Wall Surveyor!
