Party wall disputes

What is a party wall?

The main types of party walls are:

  1. a wall that stands on the land of two (or more) owners and forms part of a building -  this wall can be part of one building only or separate buildings
  2. belonging to different owners
  3. a wall that stands on the land of two owners but does not form part of a building, such as a garden wall but not including timber fences
  4. a wall that is on one owner’s land but is used by two (or more) owners to separate their buildings.

Offering practical insight into party wall notices, agreement disputes and regulations, Ian Bridge Consultancy is committed to guiding property and landowners through this complex field.

We are fully conversant in the technical interpretation of The Party Wall etc Act 1996. It requires that certain procedures are followed by any owner of land or buildings who proposes to undertake building work which affects land or buildings of an adjoining owner and provides a framework for preventing and resolving disputes in relation to party walls, boundary walls and excavations near neighbouring buildings.
