What is a Party Wall Ramsgate?

apartment party wall

In basic terms a party wall divides the structures of 2 owners with the boundary in between ownerships generally, but not constantly, placed at the centre of the wall.

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

Type A

A wall that stands astride the boundary of land coming from 2 (or more) various owners. Examples include walls separating semi-detached or terraced homes or walls that form the border in between two gardens, called a “party fence wall” (see more detailed description below).

Party Wall Type A

Type B

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 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.

Party Wall Type B

Celebration Structure

The Act also utilizes the expression “celebration structure”, as in “Party Structure Notice”. In addition to the party walls explained above this term incorporates dividing structures such as floors or other partitions. It is uncommon 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 structure. It stands astride the boundary line between lands of different owners and is used to separate those lands. Wood 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.
