What should I do if I am undertaking building work on or close to a boundary or party wall?

If you are intending to carry out work on, or within, close proximity to your neighbour’s boundary or party wall, you most likely have duties and obligations under the Party Wall Act.

 

The Party Wall Act is designed to resolve disputes, which may arise between neighbours when building work is carried out.

 

The basic requirement of the Act is that you notify your neighbour of the intended work.

 

The Party Wall Act is not administered by the Council, but further information can be obtained by contacting a party wall surveyor or by visiting the planning portal website.
