What is the difference between a party wall and a boundary wall?

A party wall either separates buildings, or is built astride the boundary and forms part of a building.

A party fence wall stands astride the boundary but does not form part of a building.

A boundary wall does not form part of a building, and does not stand astride the boundary but on one person’s land or the others.
