In England and Wales the Party Wall etc. Act 1996 aims to protect neighbouring properties when work is being carried out on an adjoining property.
When planning an extension or construction project that affects the boundary line or party wall that divides the two properties there is strict legislation that must be adhered to and for which professional guidance should be sought.
Included in this is work to foundations, structural repairs, alterations, cutting into walls, underpinning and extending or reducing a party wall.
Similarly excavating or constructing foundations that are within 3.00 metres or 6.00 metres of an adjoining property (depending on the depth of foundation required) require the advice of a party wall surveyor.
