A legal agreement made between you and your neighbours regarding any building work occurring that affects either a shared wall, boundary, or outbuilding

Party Wall Notice

The serving of a Party Wall Notice is a requirement prior to starting any building works set out under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 (the Act).

This can include works in connection with an existing wall, ceiling or floor structure shared with another property, excavations near neighbouring buildings or structures and building on or astride the boundary with another property.

If the Building Owner is planning to carry out any works defined within the Act, they must serve a written Notice within either 1 or 2 months prior to the works commencing (depending on the precise nature of the works).

An Adjoining Owner that may be affected by the proposed works has 3 options to respond:

Agree to the works;

Dissent and appoint their own Surveyor; or

Dissent and appoint an Agreed Surveyor
