It's been an  absolute pleasure working with Scott. From start to finish its been nothing short of a quality, honest, professional and reliable service. Scott was able to guide me through the process and set expectations... I've added Scott to my contacts for any future Party Wall issues.

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 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. The Act is also there to safeguard the interest of the neighbour (the Adjoining Owner) and their property.

What Works Are Notifiable?

SECTION 1 NOTICE
