Party wall services in Ealing

Planning a construction project can be a long and challenging experience. If you plan some work on your property, you must ensure that the work complies with the Party Wall etc Act 1996. The Party Wall Act serves as a framework to help prevent and resolve disputes related to party wall issues, such as construction work, modifications and excavations. 

Party wall disputes can cost you time and money, but with the help of experienced surveyors, you can help avoid some of the most common party wall issues for a simpler process.

Many different types of construction will require Party Wall Act compliance, including:

  • Extensions
  • Loft conversions
  • Changes to party walls or party fences, or demolition
  • Damp proofing
  • Excavation or underpinning a party wall

At Oakfield Chartered Surveyors, we aim to guide you through the party wall process, helping you avoid disputes with your neighbours and ensure a smooth process, so you can continue with your construction works as planned.

You won’t need a Party Wall Award for minor works inside your property, such as installing light switches or electrical points unless the work potentially impacts your party wall. If you’re unsure if your construction or home improvement project requires a Party Wall Award, please get in touch and we can provide you with a free consultation.

Party wall FAQs

Type A:

“A wall is a “party wall” if it stands astride the boundary of land belonging to two (or more) different owners.”

This could be a wall that forms a part of one building, separates two or more buildings, or is a party fence wall, which could be a wall that separates two areas of land between two different owners. This shouldn’t be confused with a typical wooden garden fence.

Type B:

A Type B party wall refers to a wall that separates two properties but has been built on one of the owner’s lands. 

If you are unsure if your wall is classed as a ‘party wall’, our team would be more than happy to advise, and help you with the next steps should you need to obtain a party wall agreement.

How does the Party Wall

If you plan on carrying out any work to an existing party wall, you will need to consult owners of adjacent properties to notify them of your intentions and obtain consent. While there are no enforceable penalties for failure to issue Party Wall Notices, a failure to do so could result in legal action being taken by the other party or parties. 

Having a Party Wall Agreement in place protects you from potential disputes with your neighbours and can also help outline some of the conditions under which the work will take place.

The party wall agreement costs should be paid by the party seeking the party wall agreement. If the other party chooses to use alternative surveyors for the agreement, you will also need to pay these costs too.

The cost of Party Wall Agreements varies according to different factors, including the level of service you require. Learn more about party wall surveyor costs to help you understand what to expect when you hire chartered surveyors for Party Wall Agreements in Ealing.
