Leading UK rights of light, daylight and sunlight and party wall surveyors

Waldrams is a niche and highly specialised chartered surveying practice that provides advice, analysis, and reports on rights of light, daylight and sunlight, party wall and other technical components for developments. The company is based in London and has more than 20 years of experience. We offer bespoke, clear and practical advice to our clients to unlock their sites’ development potential. We seek to understand our clients’ key needs to help them achieve their development goals. Our ability to maximise development potential is supported by our specialist in-house computer aided design (CAD) team that uses exceptional, state-of-the-art, three-dimensional computer models and sophisticated software to support every project.

Waldrams’ suite of services includes advising on rights of light risks on development sites and party-wall matters, preparing daylight and sunlight reports for planning applications, conducting overshadowing studies and analysing solar glare and electric light pollution (spill).

Exceptional service offering

Waldrams provides early-stage scheme feasibility and design advice to understand the critical constraints and needs for each site. We create detailed daylight and sunlight and overshadowing reports to support planning applications and prepare environmental impact assessment chapters and attend planning committee hearings to help schemes achieve planning consent.

Waldrams provides exceptional rights of light advice with clear and economically mindful risk-mitigation strategies tailored for each site. The industry-leading company is expert at resolving rights of light disputes and ensures that clients always receive the best advice and outcomes. In May 2021, Waldrams joined the RSK group. The acquisition will see the company continue to expand and achieve excellence going forward.

“I have no hesitation in recommending Waldrams who gave excellent strategic advice on Daylight, Sunlight and Solar Glare to Stanhope throughout the design process at 8 Bishopsgate. Waldrams also provided clear and concise advice post planning based on their market-leading and detailed technical knowledge to provide a path to resolve the extensive neighbourly matters around the development.”
