What is a Party Wall Notice?

1. Consent To The Party Wall Notice

This means that the adjoining owner reserves the protections of the Party Wall etc Act 1996, allowing the you (building owner) to commence with your proposed construction work.

2. Dissent And Appoint A Party Wall Surveyor To Act On My Behalf

When adjoining owner’s dissent to Party Wall Notice’s they are invoking the formalities and protections set out by the Party Wall etc Act 1996. Choosing to appoint their own Party Wall Surveyor, will make the building owner duty-bound to appoint a Party Wall Surveyor, the two appointed Party Wall Surveyors will follow the required procedures and agree a Party Wall Award legally protecting both owners.

3. Dissent And Appoint An Agreed Party Wall Surveyor

This option mirrors the second Party Wall Notice response. The only difference being, one Party Wall Surveyor acts impartially on behalf of both yourself (building owner) and the adjoining owner.

    What is a Party Wall Award?

    Party Wall Award is a legal document that is both drafted and agreed upon by either an Agreed Surveyor or two respective Party Wall Surveyors.

    Party Wall Awards are served upon completion of the Party Wall Surveying Procedures. The Party Wall Award gives the Building Owner the legal right to commence the construction works covered within the Party Wall etc Act 1996.

    The Party Wall Award, includes various clauses governing the construction works,  ensuring the risks posed to the Adjoining Owner’s properties are kept to a minimum.

    Party Wall Surveyor administers Party Wall Surveying Procedures on behalf of their appointing owner, this could be the Building Owner (owner undertaking works) or Adjoining Owner (neighbouring property to works).

    A Party Wall Surveyor’s role is to ensure Building Owner’s work proposes the minimal risk possible to the Adjoining Owner’s property as well as ensuring it is fully protected from the proposed construction works.

    Section (1) of the Party Wall Act, deals with a building owner’s new walls being built up to your shared boundary line, referred to as the line of junction within the Act. Serving a Section (1) Notice, enables the building owner to build the proposed wall or walls, usually giving their contractors the legal right of access whilst building the wall.

    Section (6) of the Party Wall Act deals with a building owner’s excavation works. A Section 6 Notice, referred to as a Notice of adjacent excavation within the Act, enables the building owner to excavate within 3m to a depth lower than the adjoining owner’s property
