Jane Senior – Party Wall Solicitor

Jane Senior  She is extremely commercial and fast, and particularly good when things get urgent  (Chambers and Legal Directory)

 

I have advised developers, land owners and private individuals on various issues that arise relating to party walls and the interpretation of the Party Wall Etc. Act 1996 (“the 1996 Act”).

My approach is  a commercial and pragmatic one to any issue and I aim to resolve the dispute effectively and efficiently.

I provide CPD training on behalf of the RICS and to development teams within surveyors’ practices and in-house.  I am also an accredited mediator.

Examples of issues and disputes on which I have advised in this area are as follows:

  • Advising developers as to whether a notice is required to be served under the 1996 Act on the adjoining Land Owner and if so, as to the appropriate notice to be served.
  • Advising private individuals who wish to understand where the boundary line lies between their land and a neighbours and whether they are able to build using an existing wall under the provisions of the 1996 Act.
  • Visiting sites and providing an opinion as to who is liable for the maintenance and repair of walls on a party’s land.
  • Acting for parties who wish to appeal the contents of a Party Wall Act Award, as to timescales, procedure and prospects of success.
  • Advising property owners in a situation where a neighbouring owner has removed a supporting wall.
  • Representing parties who wish to make representations to the Building Owner and the Party Wall Surveyor as to the terms and conditions to be included in a Party Wall Act Award.
  • Advising parties who wish to seek an injunction to prevent work to what they believe is a party wall.

If it would help to discuss any matter about which you are considering instructing us, please call Jane on 01789 206149 or drop her an email
