Party Wall Awards

STH can write up and support you with your party wall agreement.

WHAT WE OFFER

In line with the Party Wall legislation that was passed in 1996 we can check your liability and correct your building to ensure it complies with the Party Wall etc Act 1996.

We act as Party Wall Surveyors for building owners affected by works and requiring notice and consent under the Party Wall etc Act 1996. We serve and receive notices. We agree Party Wall Awards and Schedules of Condition. We ensure that the works proceed in accordance with the documentation and that any subsequent damage is rectified by the parties responsible.

The Party Wall Act

The Party Wall Act is a UK law that was introduced in 1996. The purpose of the act is to set out the procedures to be followed when carrying out certain types of building work that affect neighbouring walls, party fence walls, and excavations near neighboring buildings.

Prior to undertaking any work on a party wall, it is imperative to obtain written consent from both the building owner and the adjoining homeowner. This consent is required regardless of the nature or scale of the project. It is also important to ensure that this permission is documented in writing to avoid any conflicts or legal issues arising.

The legislation applies in England and Wales but does not extend into Scotland or Northern Ireland.

I instructed STH to undertake a party wall award between my company and a neighbour. Nick was prompt, professional and a pleasure to deal with. Many thanks for your help.

Couldn't be happier with the service that was provided. For reliability and efficiency, I couldn't have asked for anything more. Strongly recommend!
