THE PARTY WALL ACT
The Party Wall etc Act 1996 provides a framework for preventing and resolving disputes in relation to party walls, boundary walls and excavations near neighbouring buildings. A building owner proposing to start work covered by the Act must give adjoining owners notice of their intentions in the way set down in the Act.
We are able to act as Party Wall Surveyor both for the Building Owner who is undertaking the works and for the Adjoining Owner.
