Get Estimates for Party Wall Act
When carrying out building works, it is important to think if the work will effect others around you. Do you have neighbours, both either side of your house, or above and below if you are in a flat or maisonette? If so then the Party Wall Act 1996 (sometimes referred to as party wall act, party wall or the wall act) needs to be considered. This may affect someone who either wishes to carry out work covered by the Act (the "Building Owner") or receives notification under the Act of proposed adjacent work (the "Adjoining Owner"). Under the Act, the word “owner” includes the persons or body holding the freehold title, or holding a leasehold title for a period exceeding one year, or under contract to purchase such a title, or entitled to receive rents from the property.

If you are looking to carryout work on or close to a boundary, for example building a new property, or extending your property that could lead to excavations within a specified distance of a neighbour’s property. Where party wall issues often come into force is if the property is being extended up, then to reinforce what could be a loft extension, then further beams need to be introduced into a party wall or undertake foundation excavations to facilitate an extension near to a neighbouring property. Party Wall issues can be very involving and it is a particularly specialized element of property work.
