On 12 November 2020 His Honour Edward Bailey gave a webinar for the Faculty of Party Wall Surveyors on the subject of “Proper Conduct for the Party Wall Surveyor”.
It starts: “The aim of this Webinar is to consider what constitutes proper conduct by a Party Wall surveyor in the exercise of the dispute resolution functions arising under s 10 of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. It originates in a request by the Faculty to give a talk on the implications of the decision in Welter v McKeeve and McKeeve (CLCC 27.11.2018), but I have expanded the scope of the talk to consider the conduct that might reasonably be expected of a party wall surveyor from appointment, or selection, through to the service of an Award.”
This webinar was later transcribed and edited into what amounts to a very comprehensive article on the subject, and His Honour was kind enough to agree to it being published on this website as a guest article.
