Party Wall Advice
The Party Wall etc Act 1996 applies where someone wishes to carry out work on or close to a boundary. The work may be the erection of a new structure, changes to an existing structure or an intention to carry out excavations within a specified distance of an Adjoining Owner’s (neighbour’s) property.
A common situation is if you want to install the end of a beam into a party wall or undertake foundation excavations to facilitate an extension near to a neighbouring property. Another situation is if you want to remove an adjoining chimney. In many of these situations notice may need to be served in accordance with the Act and a subsequent Award may be required.
