Welcome to the Party Wall Academy

Members of the Academy are required to demonstrate a sound knowledge of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 and competency in its application. To that end, admission is solely by written assessment. The Academy is the only party wall membership organisation to have such a stringent entry requirement. 

Applications for membership are invited from anyone with a background in construction, property or allied disciplines. The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 does not require an appointed surveyor to hold any qualifications, academic or professional. Hence, we do not impose such barriers either. However, we do insist that our members  act at all times with complete integrity and comply with a strict code of conduct.

The Academy is committed to .....

Enhancing the skills and knowledge of surveyors practicing in the field of party walls

The promotion of best practice in the settlement of disputes arising under of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996

Keeping members abreast of latest developments in party wall case law

Encouraging the sharing of knowledge and experience between members

Providing ongoing support to members in respect of all party wall matters

Raising public awareness of the rights and responsibilities of property owners in connection with party wall related works 

..... we invite you to make the Academy your own
