What is a Party Wall?,[iframe]
  • The Party Wall Etc Act

    Open or Close
    If you intend to carry out building work in one of the following categories
    • Work on an existing wall or structure shared with another property
    • Building a free standing wall of a building up to or astride the boundary line
    • Excavating near a neighbouring building
    Then you must find out whether that work falls within the Party Wall Act. If it does, you must correctly notify all affected neighbours by sending a Party Wall Notice.
    If you have received a Party Wall Notice then you must respond correctly to avoid prejudicing your position.
