Undertaking building work on boundary walls or immediately adjacent to neighbouring property, can affect a number of interested parties.
The Party Wall Etc. Act 1996 makes clear the legal rights and duties of neighbouring parties and provides a framework for preventing and resolving disputes in relation to these types of building works. Anyone intending to carry out work described in the Act must give the interested parties notice of their intentions. It is important to gain early advice in order to check whether the Act applies and if so, ensure that the necessary Notices are served in good time to avoid the delaying of works.
