Helping You to Understand the
Party Wall etc. Act 1996 and How it Affects You!

Party Wall etc. Act 1996 replaced the old London Building Act and extended it’s legislation and procedures to the whole of England and Wales. If you are a property owner looking to carry out an extension, a loft conversion, a basement conversion, a new build or any structural alteration to your property which is covered by the Act, you will have rights to do so and obligations to your neighbouring owners. Whilst the Act cannot stop the building work from going ahead it is also there to safeguard the interest of the neighbour (the Adjoining Owner) and their property. Below is a brief description of the building works that are notifiable under the Act.

What Works Are Notifiable?

 
SECTION 1 NOTICE

Covers New Walls Built Up To or Astride the Boundary (Line of Junction)

Should your building work include a new wall built up to, or, astride the Boundary (Line of Junction), you are obliged to serve a Party Wall Notice upon the neighbouring owners affected by the works. 

As Specialist Party Wall Surveyors we can advise you on the works that will require Party Wall Notice(s) to be served on your neighbours & prepare and serve Party Wall Notice(s) on your behalf for a Fixed Price Fee.
