What is the Party Wall Act 1996?


The Party Wall Act 1996 is a piece of legislation in England and Wales that provides a framework for preventing and resolving disputes involving party walls, boundary walls, and excavations near neighbouring buildings. It aims to protect both building and adjoining owners' rights when construction or renovation works are carried out near shared walls or boundaries.

Under the Act, building owners must notify their neighbours of any proposed work affecting the party wall or boundary. This notice must be served in advance, and if the neighbours agree to the work, the process can proceed without further intervention. However, suppose the neighbours do not consent or fail to respond. In that case, the Act provides a dispute resolution process, typically involving appointing a party wall surveyor or agreed surveyor to settle the matter and draft a party wall award. This award outlines the terms and conditions of the proposed works, ensuring that both parties interests are protected.

The Party Wall Act 1996 helps maintain good neighbourly relations by setting clear guidelines and procedures for dealing with party wall matters, ensuring that building works do not negatively impact adjoining properties.

We received fantastic service from Harding Chartered Surveyors. The report by Kash was comprehensive, and his survey was thorough but unintrusive. Although our needs were not urgent, we managed to get an appointment for the survey to be carried out within a week and the report itself was delivered well within the two week period that they quote. I highly recommend them and understand why they are the surveyors of choice for so many home-owners and buyers in the area as well as banks and building societies.

Alaa helped me with some structural engineering queries and calculations. I am extremely happy with the service he provided: first of all for his solid and professional advices and the high quality work delivered, secondly for the availability Alaa showed during the visit and in answering follow up questions. I was also a bit in hurry with the project and Alaa was very responsive and managed to finish everything in just a few days.

I requested both a structural survey and valuation survey - important to note they are different. Harding Chartered Surveyors agreed to both and relatively quickly given public holidays. The staff were polite and very responsive. The structural surveyor spent time, took photos and explained various aspects. Obviously, I wish the report was cheaper but worthwhile highlighting issues that need attention. I would recommend Harding Chartered Surveyors.
