Party Wall Surveyors & Fees
In choosing a Party Wall Surveyor fee level should be just one element in the decision. There are indeed real life Party Wall Surveyors who manage the feat of balancing charging very high fees whilst at the same time providing a lackadaisical service and this can be immensely frustrating for a Building Owner in many ways. In particular, when they find themselves paying builders a day-rate for doing no work while the Surveyor gets round to producing the Award.
So whilst paying more is no is no assurance of receiving a better service, Surveyor fees are obviously a consideration although Service is paramount.
Whilst many companies claim to put an emphasis on service, actions can speak louder than words. As an example of where our service is different is in our encouragement of neighbours to use one Agreed Surveyor in order to minimize costs. Acting as Agreed Surveyor does involve more work and many Surveyors charge more for acting in this capacity. To the Building Owner having to foot the bill this can feel like a hidden charge on good neighbourliness. Hence, we have made the decision not to charge extra for this.
Membership of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors is optional for Party Wall Surveyors. By joining this august organisation and being regulated by them, we have made a commitment to the highest level of professionalism and the positive feedback we receive from appointing owners is well earned.
Below you will see that we spell out our fees clearly. The prices are 'from' these price points so we may not necessarily be able to offer these prices across the board. We pride ourselves on having a good mix of service and price. In other words, we offer very good value for money.
