If you are considering a major investment in a loft or basement conversion, a ground floor extension, or even structurally modifying a shared ceiling or floor in London odds are high that you will run into a party wall. A party wall is defined by the Party Wall etc Act of 1996 as any wall shared by two properties, often but not always, where the property boundary runs through the thickness of the wall. Apartments, flats, lofts, semi-detached terraced houses usually all have at least one and often more than one party wall shared with neighbours.

More often than not a Party Wall Surveyor will become involved in a major construction project. The Party Wall etc Act 1996 is Law, and since July 1997 it must be complied with throughout England & Wales. Failure to comply with the Act could result in a Court issuing an injunction to stop work until the Act is complied with, resulting in possible extra costs, delays… …to your project.

Even relatively mild construction delays can add major unanticipated costs to your budget. If a dispute goes awry to a large enough extent it can even involve expensive litigation. It makes sense to get early advice on Party Wall matters because the true long term cost of angry and resentful neighbours is possibly impossible to calculate financially, isnÆt it?
