Party Wall Services

The David Rackham Partnership offers clients support in the management of party wall issues for both domestic and commercial properties. The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 outlines the procedure and legal protocol that must be employed when undertaking any works that fall under the act; throughout England and Wales. This includes both commercial and domestic property alike, and must be adhered to.

This includes excavation for foundations, within a specified distance from a neighbouring property, and certain works affecting Party Walls and Party Fence Walls. The Act also covers proposed works to construct a new wall at the line of junction between two properties, if not already built upon.

Either as part of our integrated services, or indeed on a standalone basis, The David Rackham Partnership can provide simple, straight-forward advice and support in managing your requirements in terms of Party Wall cases. The practice undertakes commissions for both building owners and adjoining owners, with extensive experience held in both sides of the activity. Each case is unique, and we will assess it, and develop a bespoke solution based on the merits of each case. Typical services however include:

  • Assessment of proposals & advice
  • Serving of Party Wall Notices
  • Undertaking Schedules of Condition
  • Party Wall Awards
  • Access issues and license agreements
  • Dispute resolution

The David Rackham Partnership provides extensive expertise and experience in managing this complex area of law in both residential and commercial property.
