What is a Party Wall Grantham?

apartment party wall

In easy terms a party wall divides the buildings of two owners with the boundary in between ownerships normally, however not constantly, positioned at the centre of the wall.

Section 20 of the The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 acknowledges two various types of party wall:

Type A

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

Party Wall Type A

Type B

A wall that stands wholly on one owner’s land, however is used by 2 (or more) owners to separate their structures. Examples include where one neighbour has a structure that leans against 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”. As the party walls explained above this term includes dividing structures such as floorings or other partitions. It is unusual 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 structure. It stands astride the boundary line between lands of various owners and is used to separate those lands. Wood fences, and even 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.
