Party Walls:

Should you or your neighbours be proposing to undertake any of the following works then you/ they will need to comply with the Party Wall etc Act 1996:

  • Excavate within 3m of your neighbour's property and to a level lower than their foundations.
  • Excavate within 6m of your neighbour's property (this has more complicated criteria and we would recommend that you call or read the further advice link).
  • Undertake works to a wall that is shared between Neighbours, known as a Party Structure. (please contact us or view the further advice link as this has much greater detail to consider)
