Serving A Party Wall Act Section 2
Are You Planning To Carry Out Work To Any Existing Party Structure?
The best way for you to successfully do a construction work to a party wall is to serve a Party Structure Notice.
If you are a building owner and planning to carry out work to an existing party wall between your property and the adjoining owner of the property, you need to notify the adjoining owner about your plan through a Party Structure Notice.
For example, you intend to put beams and build loft conversions in the party wall. You need to serve first a Party Structure Notice to the adjoining owner.
Also, this applicable, if you plan to remove the chimney breast or divide the gardens of your properties and the party wall, will be affected.
According to section 3 notice that sets out all the necessary work listed under the Party Wall, etc. Act 1996 Section 2, as a building owner, you have the right to do a subject to serve a valid Party Structure Notice on the adjoining building owner.
