Practical Information

Applications for our intensive Party Wall Surveyor training course are invited not only from practising surveyors, engineers and architects but from anyone with a construction background (management, technical or trade) or allied occupational competency. No formal qualifications are necessary.

The course fee is £930 - VAT is not applicable. Payment is required 21 days prior to course commencement and may be made by internet bank transfer or cheque.  

Significant discounts are available when two or more  delegates from the same company/organisation attend a course at the same time. Should it be more convenient, we are able to run in-house courses upon request and can offer a further reduction in the cost per delegate to reflect our savings in venue hire. Please contact us for a quotation and further details.

We consider it most important to the understanding of the course material that the number of people attending is restricted. To ensure a high degree of focus and interaction with the trainer, the number of delegates will rarely, if ever, be more than six.

Tuition is from 9.0am to 5.30pm on each day unless earlier or later finishing times are agreed by general consensus of delegates. Courses are non-residential and you will need to make your own accommodation and travel arrangements. Refreshments are freely available throughout the day. Lunch is not included unless the venue location is such that suitable facilities are unavailable nearby, of which we will give advance notification.

On completion of our course, you will be in possession of such specialist knowledge as should enable you to act competently in the role of a surveyor appointed under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, whether as an independent practitioner or as an adjunct to an existing business. The post-course assessment is an extension of the learning process and consolidates understanding.

Applicants must note that this course will not provide sufficient tuition to enable anyone to act as a Third Surveyor. That role should only be undertaken by a surveyor with an intimate knowledge of every nuance of the Act as regards its interpretation and implementation, which only the experience of dealing with a wide variety of different situations and their potential ramifications, can give.
