Our Property Surveying Podcast

The Berry Lodge Podcast

As part of our dedication to fully informing our clients on various different Property Surveying matters, we have launched a topical and informative Surveying Podcast.

Not only are we the first surveying company to offer a Surveying Podcast, we are also the first to discuss various different surveying topics including Party Wall Surveying, Valuation related topics and various other Surveying topics, in a straightforward and informative medium.

Special Foundations and the Party Wall etc Act 1996

In this Property Surveying Podcast, we will be discussing the Party Wall etc Act 1996 and in particular Special Foundations.

Special Foundations have long been a sticking point on Party Wall Cases and can often lead to delay and cost, both of which are now avoidable! In this podcast we elook at the facts surrounding the matter and hopefully help clarify what has long been a misuderstood Section of the Act.

What is the Party Wall etc Act and When Does it Apply?

More often than not a building owner, who is the person undertaking the construction works, finds out about the Act late in the pre-construction process and as a result their works can sometimes be delayed while the Act's procedures are followed.

In this podcast we explain what the Party Wall Procedures is so that building owners and adjoining owners are fully in the loop!
