The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 is legislation which comes into force when construction work is undertaken which may have an effect on an adjacent building or structure. The purpose of the act is to safeguard the interests of property owners or tenants on both sides of a party wall line whilst construction work is in progress. It also provides a framework for the resolution of disputes between adjoining owners should they arise.

Due to the legal implications of  'the Act' all of our Party Wall Surveyor work is undertaken by John Loades who is a member of the Pyramus & Thisbe Club  which, founded in 1974 by leading party wall surveyors, seeks to advance knowledge of party wall legislation and procedure and to promote best professional practice in its application.
