PARTY-WALL etc ACT, 1996
This Act came into force on 1st July, 1997, and, in broad terms, extended long-standing procedure in London to whole of England and Wales. There is a laid-down procedure to follow, to ensure that all Parties to a particular matter receive their just entitlement under the Act. The scope of the definition of party-wall and/or party-structure is wide, and, sometimes, is confusing. Most building operations on or close to boundaries will need an Award under the Act, unless the Building Owner (carrying out the work) and Adjoining Owner (neighbour) are happy to agree between themselves, with a short memorandum to record that agreement.
