Products & Services

Party Wall Surveyors

RMA Surveyors Ltd are party wall surveyors. We are members of The Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors. We provide Party Wall surveying and advice in compliance with The Party Wall Act 1996. We act on behalf of building owners and adjoining owners, as well as agreed surveyors for both parties.

A Party Wall usually separates buildings belonging to different owners, but could include garden walls built astride a boundary (known as party fence walls) .

The Party Wall Act is designed to avoid and minimise disputes. It makes sure property owners notify adjoining owners in advance of proposed works. Typical examples include cutting into a party wall, inserting a damp proof course or flashing and demolishing and rebuilding a party wall or structure.

It’s important to remember that notice should be served even if works are being undertaken only to your side of a wall.


Building Surveys and Homebuyer Reports

Why commission a building survey or Homebuyers Report?

Because it will help you to make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to go ahead with buying the property. Before you decide to commit yourself contractually, you can limit your exposure to risks by asking a chartered surveyor, regulated by the RICS, to provide their expertise and opinion.

Arranging your own survey is the simple, cost-effective way to avoid unpleasant, expensive after sale surprises. A report from RMA Surveyors Ltd can enable you to renegotiate the sale price of the property. The cost of the survey will pay for itself either as a tool for negotiation or by providing peace of mind. A detailed survey gives an impartial opinion, informing you about your future maintenance and repair liability.


Dilapidations

RMA Surveyors Ltd provide interim and terminal schedules of dilapidations and advice on behalf of Landlords and Tenants of offices, industrial and retail premises.

We use our technical construction expertise to interpret lease documentation, undertake surveys, compile schedules of dilapidations, make detailed cost assessments of works required and undertake dilapidations negotiations. Where building works are required to be completed we are able to specify, tender and oversee reinstatement.

We also undertake incoming schedules of condition for parties entering into new leases. All our schedules provide a detailed assessment and photographic record of the condition of a property at the beginning of a lease.

Customer Testimonials

Richard Mountain Associates were fantastic. Richard provided an excellent service and was clear and prompt with his information at all times. He helped us understand the information given and made our house buying decision much easier for us. With a decision of this proportion we wanted honesty, clarity and expert analysis, Richard gave us all of those in abundance. Highly recommended.


We have consulted and instructed Richard on many occasions within the past year re: Home Buyers Reports and Surveys etc. His response timesand quality and professionalism of services provided have been excellent. Richard is a valuable member of our association of Professional Advisor's.


We appointed Richard Mountain of RMA Surveyors to act on our behalf, as our neighbours had commenced work excavating right next to our house, without serving a party wall agreement. Richard's knowledge and expertise helped resolve the issue and allowed our neighbours build to continue whilst protecting our property, which was our biggest concern. Unfortunately our neighbours chose to ignore the first award and we had to engage Richard again to go through another award. He worked extremely well to support us and offered a voice of reason to ourselves, our neighbours and the barrister we had to engage.

Richard gave us the confidence that we needed throughout the entire process. His is extremely thorough and practical, his communication was very proactive and he dealt with sensitive issues in a professional and timely manner, often coming out at short notice.

I would fully recommend Richard for any party wall agreement.
