Is a garden wall a party wall?

A garden wall is described as a Party Fence Wall if sits on the boundary and separates two owners’ land, and does not form part of a building. If a Building Owner wishes to undertake work to a Party Fence Wall then notice should be served in the same way as if works were to a Party Wall.

If the wall sits on one side of the boundary only then this would not be considered a ‘party fence wall’ under the Party Wall Act. This is often referred to as a boundary or garden wall.
