Party Wall Matters
A party wall is a wall that separates two properties and is bound by The Party Wall etc. Act 1996. This Act also covers proposed building work astride the line of junction and/or or excavation near a neighbouring property.
You are entitled to undertake alterations to a party wall, party structure, boundary wall or to construct new foundations near to another property on the basis that your neighbour is advised of your pending work and that any damage caused will be repaired. The workings of this Act are complex, and we can advise you on any building work that may require adherence to this Act.
