Party Wall Matters

The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 provides owners of buildings with certain rights and obligations to other owners in relation to party walls and other structures defined under the Act.

Building Owners are legally required to serve formal Notice prior to commencing works so as to afford the Adjoining Owner the opportunity to consider the proposals and to decide whether to obtain professional representation.

Philip Carey has acted for Building Owners and Adjoining Owners or as Agreed Surveyor, in various aspects of residential and commercial party wall matters, including:

  • Pre-commencement appraisals to advise on party wall matters in connection with building and development projects.
  • Preparation and service of Notices required for compliance with legal obligations.
  • Consultation with project designers in connection with proposals.
  • Preparation and negotiation of Party Wall Awards.
  • Preparation of Schedules of Condition.
