If you want to change a boundary wall, you may need to obtain certain permissions. Here are some of the permissions you may need:
Planning Permission: If your property is listed, located in a conservation area, or you want to build a wall higher than 2 meters, you will need planning permission.
Building Regulations Approval: If you are making structural changes to a wall, such as removing it or altering its height, you will need building regulations approval.
Party Wall Agreement: If you are making changes to a party wall, you will need a party wall agreement. This is a legal agreement between you and your neighbor that sets out the work that will be done and how any disputes will be resolved.
Changing a boundary wall is not a decision to be taken lightly. It’s important to get professional advice to ensure that the work is carried out safely and legally. A surveyor can provide expert advice on the type of wall you have, the permissions you need, and how to go about obtaining them. They can also act as a mediator if there are any disputes between you and your neighbor.
