Party Wall Act Surveys and Services

Party Wall surveys and awards for residential and commercial properties, as well as schedules of condition and dilapidations, can be carried out to assist you in Sowerby and throughout North Yorkshire.

Under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, every ‘adjoining owner’ is subject to the provisions of the Act when one person carries out work on their home. In a typical domestic property scenario this is usually limited to one or two parties. Larger commercial developments can encompass many freehold buildings and tenanted properties. The notices and recording of condition should always follow the protocol of the Party Wall Acts.

Sowerby Surveyors will act for the party carrying out the building works, as joint surveyors acting to make sure matters are appropriately dealt with as well as for the neighbouring property owners to protect their interests.

Located in the heart of North Yorkshire is the small village of Sowerby. The well-known author, James Herriot lived in the town and Sowerby is popular with tourists.

Sowerby is mentioned twice in the Domesday Survey and remains a largely agricultural area, with commuters travelling to nearby towns and villages. The Parish Church of St Oswald dates from 1140 and is a grade II* listed building. Sowerby’s historic ‘Front Street’ contains many listed buildings and a beautiful avenue of English lime trees that were planted to celebrate the jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1887.

Five war memorials are situated in Sowerby, remembering local men who died during the First and Second World Wars.

Outside its traditional village centre, Sowerby is linked by a modern housing development to Thirsk, with its mainline rail link and is just a 15 minute drive from the A1 (M).
