Building Owners

As the Building Owner if you intend to carry out works that may affect adjoining properties. You are obligated to notify neighbours of your proposals. Notification is usually done by serving Notice(s) referencing the works which are covered under the Party Wall etc Act 1996. Works are notifiable when carrying out the following:
Works up to or on the line of boundary (applicable when building walls / foundations). Notice must be served atleast one month prior to the carrying these works.
Works on the party wall or structure shared between the two owners this can include raising, removing, inserting, demolishing and rebuilding (applicable when carrying out internal alterations, loft conversions or repair work). Notice must be served atleast two months prior to the carrying these works.
Excavation works up to 6 metres away from the neighbouring structure (applicable when carrying out excavations for extensions, piled foundations and basements) Notice must be served atleast one month prior to the carrying these works.

If you are planning to carry out any notifiable works, or would like confirmation on whether your works are notifiable, please contact our team on 020 7117 2976 now.

Third Party Obligations Reports

We provide Third Party Obligations Reports for developers who need a tactical approach to discharging all of their obligations under the Party Wall etc Act 1996. With large developments (over and above your small residential projects) we understand the importance of thoroughness and attention to detail.

Clients instruct us to prepare these reports to advise them of not only their obligations under the Act but also of neighbourly matters which could affect their development. These include but are not limited to the following:

Monitoring of adjacent properties;
Neighbourly Schedules of Condition;
Access requirements outside the Act – Scaffolding and oversailing licenses;
Boundaries and Easements.
With large and complex developments, we understand that the client cannot afford delays or issues with the neighbours. We provide sound and understandable advice in these reports to fully inform the developer of their obligations and risks related to their proposals. Once we familiarise you with the third-party obligations; our report will also detail the strategy which we would adopt in managing the party wall and neighbourly matters on your behalf.

We recommend that these reports form part of a developer’s due diligence process prior to any works being carried out. The advice contained therein can also be used to support the design team to amend any proposals should their preliminary concepts not be practical from a neighbourly matters point of view.
