Party Wall Surveying

The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 is an enabling Act, in so far as it grants the owner of a property the legal right to undertake certain works that might otherwise constitute trespass or nuisance.

However, it also seeks to protect the interests of adjoining owners from any potentially adverse effects that such works might have by imposing a requirement that all adjoining owners be given prior notice of them.
