Party Wall Act Disputes
Our team can advise in relation to disputes you may have concerning The Party Wall Act 1996. Such disputes might involve the construction of a new party wall or structure, or it might involve works to an existing party wall or structure.
Knowing what constitutes a party wall or structure and then determining whether it is subject to the Act is very important. The legislation concerning party walls is extremely complex and it is easy to find yourself or your neighbour in breach of it.
We can also advise you if this happens and seek to resolve your problems, maintaining your relationship with your neighbour to the greatest extent possible in the circumstances.
We also have close ties with specialist surveyors in this field with whom we regularly consult.
Please call a member of our team to discuss.
