  • Cutting into a party wall, for example for removal of a chimney breast, or insertion of a steel supporting beam.   OR
  • Knocking down or rebuilding an existing Party Wall.   OR
  • Knocking down or rebuilding a boundary wall under a Line of Junction Notice   OR
  • Excavations within between 3 and 6 metres of a neighbouring property’s foundations

Schedules of Condition

A Schedule of condition is a means of recording the condition of a building or premises for legal and/ or contractual reasons.

Common reasons for getting a schedule of condition include:

  • As part of a party Wall award   OR
  • To record the condition of a premises at the beginning of a commercial lease where there are repairing covenants

Valuations for Leasehold Extensions

Under current legislation leaseholders of residential property have the right to acquire a new lease for a term of 90 years in addition to any remaining period of the existing Lease. This process requires a valuation of the property with the existing lease and another valuation assuming the extended lease. This is sometimes called a ‘marriage’ or ‘synergistic’ value.

We can provide these valuations and also undertake negotiations on behalf of either the leaseholder or the landlord to arrive at an agreed premium for the extended lease.
