Party Wall etc. Act 1996

What is the Party Wall etc. Act?

The Party Wall etc Act 1996 provides a framework for preventing and resolving disputes in relation to party walls, boundary walls and excavations near neighbouring buildings. A building owner proposing to start work covered by the Act must give adjoining owners notice of their intentions. We have several specialist Party Wall Surveyors within the practice.

Easton Bevins' Experience

We have acted for:

  • The Developing Owner
  • The Adjoining Owner
  • and as Joint and Third Surveyor

We also undertake all schedules of condition and inspections. 

The extent of our technical knowledge within the practice ensures that we are able to comment appropriately and assess the detail within notices and prepare the content and provision of technical information required to form the award. As part of our service we offer 30 minutes free advice under the RICS advice scheme for domestic situations. Please contact Mike Bull in our Bristol office in the first instance. For further information please download the partywall booklet below.
