Is the Party Wall Act a legal requirement?

The Party Wall Act 1996 isn’t just best practice guidance.

It’s a legal requirement for you to fulfil your obligation to Adjoining Owners if the work you wish to undertake is covered by the Act. It’s worth double-checking with an experienced party wall surveyor whether this applies to the work your planning before you start.

If the work you wish to carry out isn’t covered under the Act, you have peace of mind and assurance you can continue without breaching any rules.
