Condition of the Property
Notifiable works under the relevant sections of the Act (such as excavating within 3 metres of a neighbouring foundation) will require a notice, and by serving such in effect invokes the Party Wall, etc. Act 1996.
Once the Act has been invoked, an Adjoining Owner (one who has had a notice served upon them) may consent or dissent. Dissenting to a notice will require a Party Wall Agreement to be drafted up, either by an agreed surveyor or two surveyors.
A Party Wall Award is a legally binding agreement that can be used in court. It contains:
- All of the relevant details from the building owners and adjoining owners and surveyors involved
- The type of works and a description of the works
- Relevant sections of the Act applicable to the works, including all suitable plans and engineer’s drawings and calculations
- Ground investigation reports
- Method statements for more tricky areas
This documentation helps keep the adjoining owner informed of precisely what is occurring next door and what is permitted under the Act.
Proximity & Locality
The property valuation report will detail amenities that are within proximity to the property. These can include shops, schools, leisure facilities, and transport links, to name but a few. Such observations will also look at the exterior of the property, the setting of the street, neighbourhood, and the general area that, either at the time of valuing or in the immediate future, will impact the cost.
One example could be a nearby body of water, which may bring value in respect of the property’s scenic nature. Still, it might also pose a risk as regards flooding or unpredictable tidal patterns.
While these criteria go by many names, this is an assessment that you can benefit from by ensuring you use a professional Property Valuation service. Indeed, if you think your property has any period or exceptional features, it’s well worth obtaining a property valuation. Such features can substantially affect the market value of your property and are easy to miss if a fundamental online property valuation is conducted.
Property Valuations can require multiple and often complex calculations to determine the financial impact derived from wear and tear or damage sustained, the location, physical alterations, and other features.
Our experienced property valuation services are objective, ensuring that your property is valued realistically so that it performs at an optimum level on the market.
Unlike instant online values, our expert team takes the time to conduct a thorough assessment of your property. Our Property Valuation service combines up-to-date knowledge of property assessment criteria and many years of experience to provide you with an accurate and helpful report.
