Why Get A Party Wall agreement?

A party wall agreement is a legal agreement between two or more property owners who share a wall, boundary, or any other structure. 

The agreement outlines the rights and responsibilities of each owner regarding the construction, repair, or alteration of the wall or structure. 

The agreement is usually necessary when one owner wants to carry out work on the shared structure that may affect the other owner’s property.

Why Do You Need a Party Wall Agreement?

There are several reasons why you need a party wall agreement, including:

Legal Protection

A party wall agreement provides legal protection to both parties by ensuring that each owner's rights and responsibilities are clearly defined. This protection can help prevent disputes and costly legal battles in the future.

Preventing Damage

If you plan to carry out any work on a shared wall or structure, it is essential to have a party wall agreement in place. This agreement outlines the necessary precautions and measures needed to prevent damage to your neighbor's property.

Compliance With The Law

In most cases, a party wall agreement is a legal requirement. The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 states that you must serve notice to your neighbor if you plan to carry out any work that may affect their property. The notice should be served at least two months before the work begins.
