Expert advice on the Party Wall Act
A party wall is the common wall, including a garden wall, between your house and your neighbour's house. While minor changes, like installing a plug socket, don't require legal action, if you want to significantly cut into the wall, raise it or demolish any part of it, you will need to follow procedures outlined in the Party Wall Act.
When disputes arise around the Act – what constitutes a party wall and whether the action is significant enough to come under the procedures of the Act – Giles Wilson can provide expert advice and representation whether you are initiating a dispute or defending yourself in one.
Whilst being able to provide advice and representation in any type of commercial or residential party wall dispute, we are also able to offer our property dispute mediation service to help parties resolve issues without going to court.
