Why Choose Smith Marston?
Anybody can fulfil the role of a ‘Party Wall Surveyor’.
No formal training is necessary, indeed, party wall surveyors do not even need to be members of the The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). As such, there can be a large variance of knowledge, and the understanding of The Party Wall etc Act 1996.
At Smith Marston, all our surveyors are experienced Chartered Building Surveyors, regulated by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. In addition, one of our Directors, Adrian Marston, has also undergone additional training and assessment so as to become a Member of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors.
We therefore pride ourselves on our level of knowledge, and our impartiality, in being able to advise you soundly on the complexities of this piece of legislation. We also are here to help you through the process, without charging you unnecessarily high fees; we never seek to ‘run up’ time related fees, which is particularly important when often it is one side who ends up paying for professional fees.
