What is a Party Wall Grimsby?
In simple terms a party wall divides the buildings of two owners with the boundary between ownerships normally, but not constantly, placed at the centre of the wall.
Section 20 of the The Party Wall and so on. Act 1996 acknowledges two various types of party wall:
A wall that stands astride the border of land coming from two (or more) different owners. Examples consist of walls separating terraced or semi-detached houses or walls that form the limit in between two gardens, referred to as a “party fence wall” (see more in-depth description below).
A wall that stands wholly on one owner’s land, but is used by 2 (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 confined by the lean-to is a Party Wall.
The Act also uses the expression “celebration structure”, as in “Party Structure Notice”. As well as the party walls described above this term includes dividing structures such as floorings or other partitions. It is rare 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 limit line between lands of different owners and is utilized to separate those lands. Wooden fences, or 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.
