What is party wall?

A party wall is a wall that divides the properties of neighbours. The ownership of that wall is shared between them.

The Party Wall Act covers any building work that may affect someone else’s property, even if it doesn’t involve a party wall. This includes cutting out pockets to insert beams, cutting away chimney breasts, underpinning, raising walls close to the property boundary or even just excavating within 6 metres of a neighbouring structure.

These works are often carried out in renovations, loft conversions, basement conversions and extensions.

A neighbour undertaking the works covered by the Act has a legal duty to serve proper notice to all affected neighbours. Failing to do so can result in a complicated claim for damages or a court injunction, which can be very expensive.

Upon receipt of a Notice, an affected neighbour has 2 options: consent to the works, meaning that they simply progress, or dissent, meaning that an independent surveyor must be appointed to resolve any dispute.

Neighbours can each appoint their own surveyor or agree to one. A surveyor will check all the information relating to the building work to minimise risk for all neighbours. Then, an Award is drafted. This is a legally binding agreement and it will usually include a record of the affected neighbour’s property.
