Legal Requirement
The serving of a Party Wall Notice is a legal requirement prior to commencing any building works set out under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 (the Act).

Building Owners planning to carry out any of the works defined within the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 must serve a written valid Notice on any Adjoining Owner who may be affected by the proposed works. Invalid Notices can cause critical and unnecessary cost and time related delays.
