What is a Party Wall Banbury?

apartment party wall

In simple terms a party wall divides the buildings of two owners with the limit between ownerships usually, but not always, positioned at the centre of the wall.

Section 20 of the The Party Wall and so on. Act 1996 acknowledges two different kinds of party wall:

Type A

A wall that stands astride the border of land coming from 2 (or more) various owners. Examples consist of walls separating terraced or semi-detached homes or walls that form the limit in between 2 gardens, known as a “party fence wall” (see more in-depth description listed below).

Party Wall Type A

Type B

A wall that stands entirely on one owner’s land, however is used by two (or more) owners to separate their buildings. Examples include where one neighbour has a structure that raids a wall that is owned by the other neighbour. Just the part of the wall that is enclosed by the lean-to is a Party Wall.

Party Wall Type B

Party Structure

The Act likewise uses the expression “celebration structure”, as in “Party Structure Notice”. Along with the party walls described above this term incorporates dividing structures such as floorings or other partitions. It is unusual that structures of this type are the topic of a Party Wall Agreement.

Party Fence Wall

A “party fence wall” is not part of a building. It stands astride the border line in between lands of various owners and is used to separate those lands. Wooden fences, or even fences with concrete posts, are not party fence walls.

Learn More about Party Wall

A party wall (occasionally parti-wall or parting wall, also known as common wall or as a demising wall) is a dividing partition between two adjoining buildings that is shared by the occupants of each residence or business. Typically, the builder lays the wall along a property line dividing two terraced houses, so that one half of the wall’s thickness lies on each side. This type of wall is usually structural. Party walls can also be formed by two abutting walls built at different times. The term can be also used to describe a division between separate units within a multi-unit apartment complex. Very often the wall in this case is non-structural but designed to meet established criteria for sound and/or fire protection, i.e. a firewall.
