The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 is the legislation that governs Party Wall issues. At DRPL, our Chartered Building Surveyors look to protect the wall / floor in question to ensure that any likely damage to your property is minimised. We ensure relevant procedures are followed and documentation in place to avoid delays and damage. If you're thinking about having building work on your property, you might need to notify your neighbours if the work will take place near or on a shared boundary or party wall.
