A Party Wall Notice is a formal document that is served by a property owner to their neighbours when they intend to carry out construction work on or near a shared property boundary, such as a party wall.

The notice is required by the Party Wall etc Act 1996 in England and Wales, and is intended to inform the other property owner(s) of the proposed work and provide them with an opportunity to consider the impact of the work and raise any concerns or objections.

The Party Wall Notice typically includes the following information:

  • 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
  • Contact information for the property owner or their representative
  • A copy of the Party Wall Act
  • A deadline for responding to the notice, is usually 14 days

When serving the notice, the property owner must ensure that it is served on all affected property owners, including the owners of any adjacent buildings. Once the notice is served, the other property owner(s) have 14 days to respond. If they do not respond or agree to the proposed work, the Act provides a process for appointing a surveyor, who will assess the impact of the work and make a decision that is binding on the parties.

It’s important to note that the Party Wall Notice is not just a formality, but a legal requirement before any work can be carried out and failure to serve one when required can lead to legal action being taken against the property owner.
