What is a Party Wall Notice?
A Party Wall Notice is a legally required notice (or letter) that provides an adjoining owner (or neighbour) with an overview of building works that the sender is intending on carrying out. These are works that under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 are deemed to potentially affect the recipients (neighbours) property.
Notices must be served for various “notifiable works” that fall under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. These notifiable works are not limited to building work to/affecting party walls. Adjacent excavations are also included. This can cover works such as loft conversions, basement conversions, extensions, demolishing of outbuildings and garages, works to garden walls, demolishing walls and building new walls on the boundary of one’s land or property, the list goes on.
