Party Wall Advice, Rights of Light

Summers-Inman’s expert advice can ensure clients comply with the provisions of the Party Wall etc Act 1996. Failure to adhere to the requirements of this Act during the early stages of a project may lead to expensive delays.

Early advice can also be provided on rights of light issues and the procedures necessary to ensure that a planned building scheme can proceed.

Disaster Management

Summers–Inman offers clients a rapid response to property disasters such as fires, floods or natural failures, providing professional advice on dealing with insurers and loss adjusters and managing the damage reinstatement works necessary.

Access Audits

Summers-Inman can provide professional property audits to ensure buildings meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. The Act imposed obligations on service providers - which came into effect in 2004 - to remove physical obstructions that discriminate against disabled people in accessing services.
