“Our project involved a straightforward party wall on one side and a complex array of 11 parties, with both
leaseholders and a freeholder on the other. Danielle was able to secure party wall agreements with all parties
to allow our project to go forward in a timely fashion. Danielle was very knowledgeable and always knew how
best to proceed. She was available to discuss specifics of the process and our progress whenever we needed.
With so many party wall agreements to arrange, I cannot think of a more challenging situation to navigate,
and Danielle delivered. Highly Recommended.”

“Our project involved a complex party wall negotiation on both sides of our house. Danielle was able to secure
party wall agreements, was very knowledgable, always knew how best to proceed and available to discuss
specifics of the process for our project to go forward in a timely fashion. As post design Contract Administrator (CA),
Danielle left negotiations with the contractor in a very efficient and collegial way. We did not have to rely
on the architects on the administration of our project, allowing them to address design issues only, as Danielle
had plenty of experience and expertise to support us as clients. Highly recommended.”
Mr Frederic Lucenet & Ms Cynthia Cheung
“Danielle was asked to look at a large residential property in South Kensington, which had suffered from
serious leaks over a 15 year period. Numerous consultants, builders and specialists investigated during this
period, but the problems remained. Despite there being little contemporaneous information available, Danielle
rolled up her sleeves and systematically inspected and tested all points of possible water ingress. Very quickly,
she was able to map the house and identify the roots causes of the leaks and instruct the necessary remedial
works. Danielle carried out her work discretely and with the utmost professionalism, whilst the owners were in
residence. The house is now completely watertight and good for another 50 years.”

“I used Danielle Brooke’s service for a long, large build in West London. Her excellent Party Wall negotiations
resulted in a positive outcome covered by my insurance. It was easy to communicate with her and she was most helpful throughout, so I didn’t need to worry. I am very happy to recommend Danielle.”
“Danielle has acted for my company in both a re-evaluation of the company’s commercial and mixed-use
properties for insurance purposes (and two party wall agreements). She has provided an excellent service in all matters and I would recommend her to other companies and individuals for similar work.”

“Danielle undertook a highly professional and comprehensive survey of 2 properties, which she delivered to a very high standard. The subsequent drawings were both very accurate and detailed, and Danielle’s knowledge and experience were extremely useful in taking this project forward. I would have no reservation in using Brooke and Associates in the future, and would strongly recommend their services to others.”

Our project involved diagnosing water ingress to some 20 projecting window bays to our 3 storey block of flats that had been ongoing for years. With specialist scaffold access and pre-remedial works enabling investigations, Danielle diagnosed the issue and then managed a local contractor to effect repairs under a formal JCT contract that completed on time and below budget. We, the freeholders of this property, thank Danielle for her hard work but more importantly attention to detail and due diligence throughout. We could not hdoneave it without her!
Neville Hay – Director of Rudge House Management Ltd.
We have employed Danielle to carry out all of our Party Wall work for many years. Most recently, she dealt with our Charlton Workstack development. She is expert, efficient and great to deal with. I can therefore recommend B and A without hesitation.
Michael Finlay - Director, The Greenwich Development Corporation
Danielle was engaged as our surveyor in a party wall award agreement. Numerous issues arose relating to the award including damage to our property caused by works carried out by a third party. We were very pleased that Danielle was our party wall surveyor – we certainly would not have wanted her on the other side. Danielle dealt with the issues with sharp clarity and professionalism. She was very communicative and her experience came through. Her negotiation skills are excellent and if one is in dispute Danielle has all the required attributes to provide the professional support one needs in such situations. We absolutely trusted Danielle to resolve the issues and she indeed took the initiative and assumed control of the situation and dealt with matters in a very constructive and effective manner and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Danielle.
George and Tracey Lambis, Coulsdon, CR5.
“We engaged Danielle to survey a large multi-dwelling property. This was a complex building of several parts
added at different times over the decades. Danielle provided a no-nonsense service. Handling the complexities
with deft professionalism and detail that quickly produced the sort of report we really needed. We would not
hesitate to use Danielle again and highly recommend her very professional service.”
“I manage about 450 retail units in and around London, most with various property management issues which
take up various amounts of time. Party wall cases are one of those matters that can be complex, requiring
specialist knowledge and thorough investigation, which would take up too much time - and I have no hesitation
in passing these onto Danielle, knowning that she will protect the company’s position. Danielle’s work is
thorough and she has proven to be adaptable when circumstances change during a project. I can get on with
my other work and not have to worry about party wall issues. Would always recommend Danielle.”
