Party Wall Act 1996
The Party Wall Act 1996 gives property owners rights to do work to the party wall (shared wall) and when excavating or building close to the boundary line. It also provides a framework for preventing and resolving disputes in relation to party walls, boundary walls and excavations near neighbouring buildings.
