Party Wall Disputes
A party wall is a wall which is part of a building and either sits across a boundary or stands wholly on one owner’s land but separates buildings belonging to different owners.
The Party Wall etc Act 1996 (PWA 1996) provides a framework that controls how a building owner who shares a boundary with an adjoining owner can carry out works.
All PWA 1996 works start life with service of the requisite notice. If the adjoining owner agrees in writing to the proposed works, you can begin the works as soon as the requisite notice period has passed on in certain circumstances even before expiry of the notice. If the adjoining owner does not agree to your proposed works, the dispute resolution procedure will be triggered.

We pride ourselves on being approachable and proactive in understanding and meeting our clients’ needs to mitigate both the stress and the cost for our clients.
