What does the Party Wall etc Act do?

A. The Party Wall etc Act of 1996 entered into force of law on July 1, 1997, throughout all of the UK. The Act was based on the London Building Acts which were found to be successful for many decades before they were extended to apply to all of England and Wales. The Party Wall etc Act is intended to foster development while still protecting the rights of adjacent property owners. The Party Wall etc Act created a framework for resolving party wall disputes in relation to certain aspects of construction, renovation, and excavation with the purpose of avoiding court action and often expensive and costly delays.
