Party Wall Act

The Party Wall Act can come into effect when a Building Owner decides to extend a property; carry out a loft conversion; build along the boundary line or deal with some internal arrangement whereby beams need to be supported on a party wall with the adjoining property.


Where rear or side extensions are to be constructed within three metres of a neighbouring property there is normally a requirement under the Act for certain Notices to be served and this might subsequently involve another Surveyor being appointed by an Adjoining Owner or Owners.


We are happy to provide initial free of charge advice by telephone as to whether the Act is likely to apply and how best to go about ensuring that it is fully complied with. If the right approach is taken with any Adjoining Owners as soon as Planning Permission is obtained it is often the case that matters can then be dealt with swiftly and efficiently to minimise the Building Owner’s costs and to avoid any unnecessary time delays in starting the project.

"Thank you so much for making the Party Wall Award as effortless for us as possible. Your patience and professionalism is notable."
