Neighbourly matters can be a major headache for architects, developers and property managers alike. But successfully negotiating Party Wall awards and Rights to Light matters does not have to be a pain.
Our own approach is business-like, engaged and commercially minded, so our focus is on getting things done sooner rather than later – without compromising on attention to detail.
Right to Light
We have full technical knowhow and reporting proficiency across the whole Rights to Light spectrum, covering everything from small domestic rural extensions to masterplan town regeneration and commercial skyscrapers.

Between them, they developed a bespoke system that is now applied by the highly experienced EK McQuade team to offer an unparalleled Party Wall service to both Building Owners and Adjoining Owners.

We are members of the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors and the Pyramus and Thisbe Society, and take an active interest in how the field is developing.

We used EK McQuade to get a Party Wall Agreement in place with our neighbouring properties. They were efficient, professional and clearly had a huge amount of experience in this area – making it a smooth process for us. We highly recommend using the team and services at EK McQuade.
I used EK McQuade for some party wall advice on my home extension – quick and attentive service at a reasonable price, can’t fault them.
Having received party wall notices out of the blue my clients were “up in arms” about what was required of them. Happily, I knew just who could help and I wasn’t disappointed with EK McQuade. Once appointed they took charge of the situation, explaining clearly the process involved and providing reassurance to anxious clients and working with the other surveyor to deliver the best outcome for all concerned. All in all a great result all round, a happy managing agent and happy clients. Highly recommend the Party Wall services from EK McQuade.
A fantastically professional company – highly recommend.
It’s a bit daunting when first you receive a Party Wall Notice (written as it is in somewhat intimidating legalese), but after a bit of a scramble I managed to find my way to EK McQuade and they were able to guide me through the whole process, which they did with unfailing efficiency and professionalism. As an adjoining owner, no fees were paid; nevertheless, from my perspective, they provided an excellent service
EK McQuade are a very professional team and were extremely helpful and efficient acting as joint party wall surveyor on our project, which involved dealing with a number of complicated Party Wall Act issues. Would recommend without hesitation.
