A Party Wall Agreement is a legal document that is created when construction work is proposed on or near a shared property boundary, such as a party wall. The agreement is used to outline the rights and responsibilities of both property owners and to ensure that the proposed work is carried out in a way that is safe, fair, and does not cause unnecessary damage or inconvenience to the other property owner.

The Party Wall Agreement is a document that outlines the details of the proposed work, the rights and responsibilities of each property owner, and any conditions or restrictions that must be followed. It is typically prepared by a surveyor appointed under the Party Wall etc Act 1996 in England and Wales, who will help to ensure that the agreement is fair, reasonable, and in compliance with the Act.

In general, the Party Wall Agreement will include details such as:

  • Description of the proposed work
  • Start and finish dates for the work
  • Access arrangements for the work
  • Any conditions or restrictions that must be followed
  • Responsibilities for maintaining and repairing the party wall after the work is completed
  • Insurance requirements for the work
  • Dispute resolution process in case any issues arise.

Once the Party Wall Agreement is signed by both property owners, it becomes legally binding and enforceable by law. In case either party does not agree with the proposed work, the Act has a process for appointing a surveyor, who will act impartially and make a decision that is binding on the parties.
