Vanguard Solicitors

The Party Wall etc Act 1996 provides a framework for preventing and resolving party wall disputes relating to boundary walls and excavations near neighbouring buildings. A building owner proposing to start work covered by the Act must give adjoining owners notice of the work they intend to carry out in the way set down in the Act. Adjoining owners can agree or disagree with what is proposed.

If you are having difficulty resolving a dispute, our experienced property dispute solicitors can advise you on how the Act should be applied in your situation. We can defend your party wall rights and ensure any dispute is dealt with quickly and cheaply. We can also make representations on your behalf to neighbouring property owners. If you need to urgently stop building works from neighbouring properties, we can seek a Court injunction to prevent further work, allowing you more time to resolve your dispute.

The increasing amount of development in relation to existing buildings, particularly in London, brings with it more party wall issues and party wall disputes. Sometimes building owners ignore the Act, and some only pay lip-service to it. A building owner causing damage to the adjoining owner’s property before he has been given notice under the Act is a fairly common breach of statutory duty. Disputes arising after notice has been given include disputes about the appointment of a third surveyor, fees, and what can and cannot be done under the Act.

We provide party wall advice and represent clients in party wall disputes under the Act and in related appeals.
