Party Wall Surveying

Following the introduction of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 in England & Wales, the Act has now superseded all previous legislations for dealing with boundary wall disputes. The Act governs the way in which the owner of a property carries out works on or near to neighbouring buildings or structures and protects the interests of anyone who might be affected by the works.

The Act covers:

  • Repair or rebuilding to an existing wall or structure dividing two or more seperate properties
  • Excavation close to neighbouring buildings/structures.
  • Building an independent wall or wall forming part of a building which astride a boundary with a neighbouring property.

The Act enables competent surveyors to resolve such disputes, but imposes certain obligations and the adoption of procedures on buildings owners, which cannot be set aside.
