30 Years of Party Wall Matters

01 December 2017

Congratulations to our Senior Party Wall Surveyor, Chris Morton, who is celebrating his thirtieth year specialising in Party Wall matters.

Over the course of a long and well established career, Chris has worked on a wide range of projects, from city centre offices and student accommodation schemes to developments near listed buildings, and from retail outlets and shopping centres to inner city housing developments.

Chris joined Stace in 2009 and has been a key point of contact for a number of Stace’s clients:

“I became a Party Wall Surveyor by chance, after I joined a surveying firm who specialised in the service. I quickly realized that there was a lot to learn! For a fairly narrow, very specialist subject there is a surprising amount to know… I became interested in the complexities of the service, which combine two topics I find fascinating – a solid understanding of the law and legal process and the practicalities of the built environment.

The projects we do at Stace are varied, involving all sorts of building types, ranging from large commercial and retail developments  to small domestic projects. This means myself and the Party Team have to keep up to date with changes in property law, such as new case law or changes in the  industry – there is something new each day.”
