The Party Wall Masterclass Part 10 - Dealing with difficult surveyors/owners
Although party wall surveyors are often praised by courts for their pragmatic and practical approach to dispute resolution under the Act, a minority of party wall surveyors create and maintain disputes, and are more interested in amassing large fees than actually resolving matters. Adjoining owners too can sometimes see the party wall process as an opportunity to obstruct their neighbours’ plans. How can we handle such bad apples?

In this class we will discuss:

(1) Lines and methods of communication
(2) Laying down markers on costs and fees
(3) Separating fees from substantive awards
(4) Vetoing hourly rates
(5) Choosing third surveyors
(6) Defining disputes clearly
(7) Setting cost-caps
(8) Complaints to professional bodies
(9) Court action/injunctions
(10) Mediation or arbitration by third party
(11) Involving the parties direct

The format will be around 40 minutes of presentation by Nick Isaac QC, followed by at least 20 minutes of Q&A

Jun 24, 2020 01:00 PM in London
