Jonathan Watts on Thu 26 Sep


When does a Party Wall Notice need to be issued and would a Party Wall Award be required?


In this article, we will explain the main obligations under the Party Wall etc. Act (1996) for any Property Owner wishing to carry out works to either an existing party wall/structure, build at or astride a boundary line or excavate near a neighbouring building/structure and provide clarity on steps that need to be taken to mitigate any potential legal issues at a later stage.
