Get some advice on party wall procedures or a quote from a party wall surveyor

If you’re undertaking work to your Wapping property and need advice on party wall matters or have received a party wall notice and are considering appointing a surveyor you can contact some or all of the surveyors listed above for initial advice or a quotation. We would recommend contacting 2 or 3 from the list. Try clicking through to their websites to see which ones would be most suitable for your purposes.

Are you planning to extend or alter your property and require advice on party wall matters?

If you are proposing to alter or extend your property it may be necessary to formally notify your neighbours. Works covered by the Party Wall Act include cutting in to the party wall (such as to insert beams as part of a loft conversion), excavating within 3.00m of a neighbouring or shared structure (such as for the foundations to an extension) or building a new wall either up to or astride the boundary. Upon receipt of the notice your neighbours have the option to either consent or dissent and appoint a surveyor.   

If you intend to draft the notice(s) yourself you may care to use our free Party Wall Notice Generator Tool. Alternatively, speak to the surveyors listed as most will serve notices for a nominal fee as that can be done without visiting the property.

Have you received a notice and would like some advice on your options?

It’s natural to be concerned when building works, over which you have no control, are being undertaken in close proximity to your property. It may be that the risk is minimal and a chat with one of our surveyors covering the Wapping area should put your mind at rest if that is the case.

If the works are more complex or high risk you may choose to appoint a surveyor to ensure that any necessary safeguards are in place prior to the works commencing. As part of the process the condition of your property will be recorded and checked again at the end of the works. In all normal circumstances the owner undertaking the works will be responsible for the surveyors’ reasonable fees.   

Our article explaining the role of the party wall surveyor is a good starting point.

Information on Wapping

Wapping is in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, where it hugs the north bank of the River Thames. It is south of Whitechapel and Shadwell and east of Tower Bridge.

Wapping is an ancient area of London that is steeped in history. It has suffered mixed fortunes over the years and went into decline following the Second World War. More recently, it has become a very desirable residential location, due to a huge regeneration project and the construction of a number of luxury riverside developments. Its close proximity to both the City and Canary Wharf has also helped to ensure that property prices are a premium. Some small gardens provide pleasant and surprising diversions to the river frontage and there is an olde worlde feel to the whole area.

When London Overground opens in June 2010 Wapping will be on the line. Otherwise, Tower Hill underground is to the west of Wapping. This is in zone 1 and is on the District and Circle lines. Limehouse is to the east and this is in zone 2, on the DLR.
