The Party Walls etc. Act 1996 provides a framework for dealing with the complex and often expensive disputes between property owners over the repair and maintenance of a party wall.

Providing clear guidance on this Act is Party wall legislation and procedure, which is essential reading for chartered surveyors who accept instructions where the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 is relevant. Features of this guidance note include:-

  • various stages involved in party wall work arranged chronologically;
  • guidance for surveyors when acting for clients in the early stages of party wall;
  • procedure and those appointed to administer the Act’s dispute resolution mechanism;
  • relevant draft forms and precedents; and
  • a clear presentation of guidance to meet the requirements of the busy professional.
This edition of Party wall legislation and procedure is a complete rewrite of the previous edition, providing guidance for surveyors working in circumstances where the Party Walls etc. Act 1996 will apply as well as the procedures to be followed.

  • the nature and purpose of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996;
  • advice to be given to clients on the application of the Act;
  • service of notices;
  • acceptance of appointments under the Act;
  • powers and duties of appointed surveyors;
  • surveyors’ role in preparing primary award;
  • surveyors’ role subsequent to publication of primary award; and
  • challenges to surveyors’ decisions.
