Party Wall Surveyor Costs
To help develop this article click 'Edit this article' above.
They might be, for example (2020):
- Party Wall Notice Fees from £65.00 +VAT
- Schedule of Condition Report Fees from £450.00 +VAT
- Party Wall Agreement Fees from £950.00 +VAT
Party wall surveyor’s hourly rates range from £80 to £275 + VAT per hour, however, this is not to say that applying a full £275 + VAT hourly rate to the entire job is reasonable, as this would see the building owner paying far to high a fee. A reasonable party wall surveyor will only apply their full hourly rate to the actual party wall aspects of the job.
Schedules of conditions can often take 1-3 hours depending on the size of the property and the level of the defect, an adjoining owner’s party wall surveyor on an hourly rate of £275 + VAT could therefore easily rack up a fee of £1000 + VAT when taking account travel. This could be deemed unreasonable, a good building owner’s party wall surveyor would be able to competently deal with an issue.
Party wall surveyor costs may vary as property type varies. For example:
- Legal Experience
- Rear and Side Extensions
- Loft Conversions
- Basement Conversions
- High-Risk Works
