Since 1 July 1997, the Party Wall etc Act 1996 has been in force throughout England and Wales. This Act, though a short document, requires careful application.
There are various ways in which the Party Wall Act may come into play, but due consideration should be given where construction works are planned that affect a shared wall between the developer (the 'Building Owner' as titled under the Act) and their neighbour (the 'Adjoining Owner'), or where excavations e.g. for foundations, are planned nearby the property of another. Similarly if you intend to build on the boundary between your land and your neighbour - it is likely the Party Wall Act will apply.
If you are planning such works as descried above, you may need to observe the requirements of the Act and issue statutory notices in the prescribed form.
If you have received a notice under the Party Wall etc Act 1996, you should speak to an appropriately qualified surveyor.
