Party Wall etc ACT 1996 Notifiable Construction works

Loft Conversion

A Loft Conversion is a popular construction project in North East London that often falls under the jurisdiction of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. This type of work typically requires that Party Wall Notices be issued. Loft conversions in this area frequently involve two key aspects of the Party Wall Act. Firstly, the removal of the existing roof can expose the Party Wall, necessitating legal notifications and agreements. Secondly, the project may involve cutting into the Party Wall to insert steel support beams, which also requires compliance with the Act to ensure everything is handled smoothly and legally.

Internal Works

Various internal works in North East London fall under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, necessitating the issuance of Party Wall Notices. Among the most common internal projects covered by this act is the removal of a chimney breast. This process involves cutting away the chimney breast that is attached to the Party Wall and providing support for the remaining stack or breast. Both of these actions are regulated by the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, ensuring that all modifications are carried out legally and with proper notifications to adjoining property owners.

Home extensions

Home extensions are a frequent type of construction work in North East London that fall within the scope of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, often requiring the issuance of Party Wall Notices. Such projects typically involve two specific aspects of the Act. The first pertains to the excavation work required for laying the foundations of the extension, which must be communicated to adjoining property owners. The second aspect depends on the positioning of the extension’s flank wall; if it is constructed up to or astride the boundary line, it triggers the need for serving Party Wall Notices. Compliance with these regulations ensures that the extension work is legally sound and respects the rights of neighbouring properties.

New Walls

New Walls

The construction of new walls in North East London often falls under the jurisdiction of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, necessitating the issuance of Party Wall Notices. If a new wall is being constructed up to, or astride, the boundary line, a Party Wall Notice is required by the Act. This notice not only informs adjoining owners about the construction but also facilitates access to their land. Such access ensures that the wall can be built safely and to a high standard, maintaining good relations with neighbours and adhering to legal requirements. Compliance with the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 is crucial for smoothly managing these aspects of construction.

Basement Conversions

Basement Conversions

Basement conversions in North East London are governed by the Party Wall etc. Act 1996, which requires the issuance of Party Wall Notices. This type of project involves deep excavations and underpinning of the existing Party Wall or the walls of adjoining properties, which are considered higher-risk activities. Due to the potential risks, it’s common practice to appoint a checking engineer to oversee the work. Additionally, Security for Expenses may be requested by an adjoining owner’s surveyor to ensure that any damages or issues can be adequately addressed. These precautions help to maintain safety and integrity throughout the conversion process, while also protecting the interests of all parties involved.

Other Works

Other Works

The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 encompasses a variety of works, some of which are commonly misunderstood regarding their inclusion under the Act’s remit.

Sean W.

Icon have been amazing. From when I appointed them to the service of my award. Great service! Thank you again.

Ollie B.

Beau and Sadek dealt with my party wall matter in a friendly and efficient manner. My neighbour had refused to use an agreed surveyor and instead appointed a party wall surveyor who raised a number of detailed questions which Beau and Sadek answered rapidly. Highly recommended.

Justin D.

Beau and his team provided us a professional and satisfied service. There was 2 weeks delay due to mis-understanding but Beau’s team handled well and put great efforts to ensure we obtained the party wall award in time for our construction work. I would recommend their service.

Tao Fu

Thoroughly happy with Beau’s work as my party wall surveyor and would be happy to recommend him. He dealt with matters promptly, explained things well and alleviated stress on my part. He also handled my adjoining owner’s surveyor (one of “those” party wall surveyors) very well. Thank you very much, Beau!

Azz H.

Very good service Beau went the extra mile. Pre and post survey phone calls also really helped give me assurance. Highly recommend.

Sarah A.

I received a invalid Party Notice from my neighbour, Beau picked up on this had the notices re issued and agreed the award within 5 days. I couldn’t recommend anyone better. Great service!

    What is the Party Wall Act?

    – The Party Wall Act is legislation that provides a framework for preventing and resolving disputes related to party walls, boundary walls, and excavations near neighbouring buildings.

    – Yes, if you plan to conduct any work that involves party walls or close proximity to a neighbour’s structure, you must comply with the Party Wall Act.

    – The Act covers various works, including altering a party wall, building a new wall at a boundary, and excavating near a neighbouring building.

    – You must provide a written notice to all affected neighbours detailing the proposed works, at least two months before starting any work.

    – If a neighbour does not consent to the proposed works, both parties must appoint a Party Wall Surveyor or agree to appoint a single surveyor who will resolve the dispute.

    – Neighbours cannot stop work that is lawful and complies with the Party Wall Act, but they can influence how and when the work is executed through the dispute resolution process.

    – A Party Wall Agreement is a legally binding document drafted by a Party Wall Surveyor(s) that details the rights and obligations of both parties; it is required if neighbours dissent to the Party Wall Notice.

    – A Party Wall Notice is typically valid for one year after being served; work must begin within this period.

    – The notice should include details of the work, the start date, statutory citations of the Party Wall Act, and a statement that it is a legal notice.

    – Non-compliance can lead to disputes with neighbours, legal challenges, and potential court orders to halt or reverse the construction.
