Party Wall Agreements

Bartley West Chartered Surveyors offer Party Wall Agreements across the South of England.

Party Wall

Overview

Party walls usually separate buildings belonging to different owners ie. in a semi detached or terraced house but could include garden walls built astride a boundary – known as party fence walls.

Where a wall separates two different sized buildings, often only the part that is used by both properties is a party wall, the rest belonging to the person or persons on whose land it stands.

Do I need a Party Wall Agreement?

The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 came into force to bring a process to potential disputes in such matter. Homeowners in England and Wales now have a procedure to follow when building work involves a party wall or party fence wall, some excavations close to neighbouring buildings, and new walls at boundaries. If a dispute arises the Act states that party wall surveyors are to be appointed to resolve the matter.

We accept appointments in some areas that we cover as Surveyor for the Building Owner, the Adjoining Owner or as Joint Surveyor as defined under the Party Wall Etc. Act 1996
