Party Wall Matters
The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 came into force on the 1st July 1997. It applies to every type of owner of land within Wales and England with very few exceptions. But how many owners know of the implications of the Act? Very few in our experience!
The Party Wall Act affects owners of property who intend to carry outbuilding work on or near walls separating a property from an adjoining property and owners of property adjacent to proposed building work.
This may include:-
- The demolition of an existing building
- The erection or extension of a building
- The alteration or refurbishment of a building.
