I have a new build project, in which the proposal is to build up to the boundary. The neighbour was insistent that he wanted the Party Wall Act paperwork done correctly, so as to protect his own property. I was recommended Andy Lane of Devon Party Walls. Upon 1st contact, it was apparent that Andy was very easy to get on with and professional in his manner. I felt at ease appointing Andy for the role. Andy met and exceeded my expectations, he completed the paperwork in a throughly professional manner and reached an agreement with the neighbour easily, making the process plain sailing and trouble free. Thanks very much Andy

Andy provided services for us regarding Party Wall notices. Our project took some time and there were a number of issues that Andy helped us to deal with along the way. He explained the whole process, answered numerous questions and responded very quickly to communications. He kept us up to date with the situation and was adept at moving tricky things forward. He was there every step of the way, with his wealth of knowledge and calm manner. He is a true professional and was a pleasure to work with. We have no hesitation in recommending him.

If you are thinking of going ahead with a Party Wall agreement without using an expert like Andy think again. He is a consummate professional, who is 'firm but fair' in his communication style and feedback, whilst independent in his approach to resolving issues. He might not always tell you everything you might be hoping to hear, but he delivers on his commitments, was always available and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Highly recommended. A difficult process for us but Andy kept us informed and kept the wheels in motion. Managed to get it done in a timely and efficient manner despite all the obstructions that were in his way. Thanks very much!

Andy provided free initial advice and then helped us with serving notices on our neighbour. Fixed pricing structure was made clear from the outset. Notices were successfully served and agreed without the need for an Award. Andy also liaised with our builder and architect to ensure appropriate drawings to accompany the notices without additional charge. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Hi this review is on behalf of Mike Weeks, Director, Jordan Radford Weeks Ltd. We are a new developer and Andy supported us with 4 party wall neighbours of which 3 went smoothly. Unfortunately 1 neighbour proved to be extremely difficult and awkward and forced a dispute. Andy was ultra professional and level headed throughout this testing period. His advice and strategy was invaluable throughout this unchartered territory for us. Andy was very knowledgeable about subject matter, able to counter challenge to AO Surveyor and give us reassurance . Equally firm and fair with us. Definitely use DPW again.

Andy's advice has been extremely helpful and valuable for us after our neighbours failed to serve us notice under the party wall act. Andy responded quickly and comprehensively to all our enquiries and his knowledge in this field is second to none. We would recommend him to anyone seeking help and advice for all things related to party wall agreements.

Value for money : The price offered for the consultancy appeared good value for money and explored options to offer both parties further savings.

Professional, helpful and honest. Andy from Devon Party Walls was a pleasure to work with. Great communication, very knowledgeable, he guided us through the process. We were only charged for necessary work, which was very reasonable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

Party Wall Act. I had a query on Party Wall Act in relationship to a development on my property boundary. Contacted Devon Party Walls late one evening I had an immediate email response from Andy Lane. After further informative emails and a next day telephone call the problem was resolved. Excellent service and no charge. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Devon Party Walls provided constructive and practical advice. I would highly recommend them. I contacted Devon Party Walls regarding my neighbour's rear extension. Andrew Lane clearly explained the purpose of the Act and the process that both parties need to go through. I am hoping to preserve a good relationship with the neighbours whilst protecting my rights under the Act, and I am happy that Devon Party Walls can assist me in this respect. Thanks!

Party Wall guidelines, information and help. We had very good customer service. Everything was explained clearly so we knew how to proceed as we hadn't fully understood beforehand. Letters were written on our behalf to our party wall neighbours and we received copies. Mr Lane kept us informed throughout. He surveyed our property and took photos prior to any work being started. We felt confident in his work and that if there was any reason for concern with works being carried out to the adjoining property Mr Lane would be able to return to assist.

Clear, useful advice. I contacted the company with a structural/legal query about my shared garden wall. Andy Lane answered my questions immediately and clearly, both verbally and in writing, and even visited to inspect the wall in question. All without charge. Should I need his continued help over the issue I'll have no hesitation in using Andy's services. First class.
