Party Walls: a Practical Guide explores and explains the many practical implications of the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. The Act frequently impacts on the design, scheduling, and construction of building projects, and it is important that those affected are able to negotiate its complexities.

This book provides a clear and accessible guide to the legislation and the practical considerations for those whose work involves Party Walls – not just for architects and other built environment professionals, but for clients too, or indeed anyone acting as a Party Wall Surveyor in the resolution of a dispute.

Along the way, it shows the wide range of benefits – including benefits to the building design itself and to the financial bottom line of the whole project – that are open to the architect who is able to manage party wall issues competently.

The book includes:

  • a practical overview of the legislation
  • a complete explanation of the role of Party Wall Surveyors
  • guidance on preparing and drafting awards
  • model case studies, letters, notices and licences
  • guidance on fees
  • and will enable the architect to:

  • advise clients on the implications of the legislation
  • amend designs to avoid costly party wall disputes
  • act as a Party Wall Surveyor
