    Buying a home is the biggest investment most of us make, so it is important to get it right.

    That means making sure you know exactly what you are buying, and any responsibilities or obligations that come with it. The same goes for selling a home, when it is important to understand all the factors that will affect the final price. In fact, home owners who intend to stay in a property also have an interest in having a detailed knowledge of its condition so they can plan its maintenance. Whether buying, selling or staying, a survey made by an expert ensures there will be no nasty surprises.

    EK McQuade is the product of a merger between the existing Party Wall side of Earl Kendrick’s business and Party Wall specialists McQuade Property Consultancy. Like all successful mergers, it builds on the strengths of both parties to create something that is greater than the sum of its parts.

    Earl Kendrick have the market presence and knowledge of the property business across the residential and commercial sectors — including Party Wall matters — to get the new business off to a flying start. And as a business focused on Party Wall matters, McQuade bring a solid client base, unparalleled expertise and bespoke and efficient processes that are tried and tested to ensure a successful resolution to Party Wall matters every time.

    EK McQuade will be focused solely on Party Wall matters. Its dedicated team, drawing on the best of both merging companies, will provide strengthened Party Wall expertise to existing clients of both companies as well as seeking new business. We are confident that we now offer the best Party Wall services available in London and the South East, and look forward to working with a variety of new and old clients.

    The merger will build on excellent synergies between the two merging companies, which share a friendly and personal approach as well as expertise and professionalism that is second to none. In keeping with the forward-looking and innovative approach of both merging companies, EK McQuade will also place a premium on training and education of younger members of the team to ensure we offer the best possible service both now and well into the future.

    A Party Wall is one shared by buildings or flats belonging to different owners, or a garden wall built along a boundary.

    If a building owner wants to make alterations to their property that affect a party wall, they are required by the Party Wall Act to notify the owner of the adjoining property. EK McQuade has a team of experts to help either party negotiate this process with a minimum of fuss.

    We ensure nothing requiring express consent is missed and that anything that could affect a neighbouring property is identified. Where appropriate we also obtain advice from other specialists.

    The key to securing the right kind of insurance for your property is a thorough professional survey of the building’s condition and the relevant terms of any lease.

    That’s where we come in. We are experts both in Reinstatement Cost Assessment - a careful assessment of what it would cost to rebuild a property if it were destroyed by fire, flood or other perils for which insurance is available - and in overseeing claims in the event of damage or destruction, as well as managing reinstatement works.

    Earl Kendrick offer comprehensive design services, with particular expertise in the refurbishment of internal common parts in residential blocks, as well as architectural design.

    The first stage of any project is to understand our client's requirements. We will arrange an initial meeting to discuss the client’s ideas and establish the extent of the works. Where appropriate we create mood boards or 3D modelling to provide various options and ideas and ensure clients understand how the finished designs will look and feel.

    In our experience, this greatly facilitates the decision-making process, especially where a number of stakeholders are involved. Once all the finishes are approved, we see the project through to completion. And as experienced project managers, we approach design projects with the same rigour we bring to more technical projects, and have a comprehensive understanding of the relevant statutory regulations.

    Listing marks a building's special architectural and historic interest, with the aim of protecting it for posterity.

    This does not mean the owner is not allowed to do anything to the building at all, or even to demolish it, but that it is brought under the remit of the planning system so that any proposed alterations are considered in the context of its special interest.

    At Earl Kendrick, we have a have demonstrable track record of managing maintenance and refurbishment works on Listed buildings, and the expertise to deal with statutory requirements and liaise with planning authorities to ensure works are completed efficiently and economically while preserving the unique heritage of the building itself. We are also expert in dealing with leaseholder alterations and licence to alter matters on behalf of both leaseholders and landlords, including for Listed buildings.

    Sooner or later, major works are required in the lifecycle of all residential blocks, and when handled professionally, they reduce the need for expensive interventions in the long term.

    These projects can involve a wide variety of technical issues, from external maintenance and window replacements to roof refurbishments. Earl Kendrick have the experience and expertise to manage not only the technical aspects of such projects but also complicating factors such as insurance implications, licences to alter and Listed building status. At the core of our approach is a communications strategy that ensures all stakeholders are kept informed and can be assured we are looking after their long-term interests.

    Earl Kendrick have many years of experience in the residential sector, where we have gained a reputation both for technical expertise and a for focus on people as much as buildings.

    Many of our surveyors have a background in the commercial sector, and their expertise has proven invaluable in combination with the wider range of experience reflected in our team. Indeed, we have found our approach works just as effectively in the commercial sector, where we have developed good relationships with a number of managing agents.

    We specialise in helping small to medium commercial managing agents who do not have in-house building surveying expertise. And while we understand the differences between the residential and commercial sectors, we believe what both have in common is a need for the expertise and people-centred approach for which Earl Kendrick are well known.
