What is a Party Wall Bloxwich?
In easy terms a party wall divides the buildings of two owners with the boundary in between ownerships generally, but not always, placed at the centre of the wall.
Area 20 of the The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 recognises 2 different types of party wall:
A wall that stands astride the boundary of land coming from 2 (or more) different owners. Examples include walls separating semi-detached or terraced houses or walls that form the boundary between two gardens, referred to as a “party fence wall” (see more in-depth description below).
A wall that stands completely on one owner’s land, however is used by two (or more) owners to separate their buildings. Examples consist of where one neighbour has a structure that leans against a wall that is owned by the other neighbour. Only the part of the wall that is enclosed by the lean-to is a Party Wall.
The Act likewise utilizes the expression “celebration structure”, as in “Party Structure Notice”. As the celebration walls described above this term incorporates dividing structures such as floors or other partitions. It is rare that structures of this type are the subject of a Party Wall Agreement.
Party Fence Wall
A “party fence wall” is not part of a building. It stands astride the boundary line between lands of different owners and is utilized to separate those lands. Wooden fences, or perhaps fences with concrete posts, are not celebration 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.
