Project Description

Party Walls

AWP Consulting, Chartered Surveyors and Project Managers specialise in issues with neighbours. We provide a first class, personalised nationwide service from our base in North Yorkshire.

Legislation concerning party walls has been in place in London for several centuries but only extended to the rest of England and Wales in the 1990s.

It is important to understand the scope of the Party Wall etc Act. The et cetera part covers, amongst other things work intended to be carried out proximity to a neighbour and not just on a shared element.

The act is a commendably straightforward piece of legislation and when followed correctly the process almost invariably runs smoothly.  Even when it doesn’t, the Act sets out procedures for that event

Problems can occur when one party has either wilfully ignored the provisions of the Act or been unaware of them. More often than not, this involves residential owners; commercial owners tend to be more experienced and better advised.

Both the government and the RICS have published guidance notes party wall matters and we give links to each
