What is a Party Wall?

A wall that stands on the boundary between two or more owners is known as the Party Wall. Such examples may include a wall between two gardens, terraced houses, semi-detached houses, etc.

What is the Party Wall Agreement?

A Party Wall agreement is a legal agreement that shows that the neighbours around your house are okay with the changes of any building work that affects any shared wall boundary or outbuilding between you and your neighbours.

This Party Wall Act 1996 is effective for houses in Wales and England. This act helps prevent disputes relating to conversion or extension work between parties. This agreement covers all the details of the work that will be carried out, type of work, conversion or extension, working hours, duration of the work, how it may affect the shared wall and the neighbours, etc.

Things to Consider

Party Wall Agreement

What is covered by a Party Wall Agreement?

The agreement will cover the following areas:

  • How the building party would complete the proposed functions.
  • What work is going to be done along with Architectural drawings and plans?
  • Working hours: When the work can be carried out, only on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. can residential work be done.
  • Who will pay for the Party Wall Surveyors Fee?
  • Access to the property for your surveyors.
  • The current situation of the properties of both parties
  • How you can prevent the damage


Not every work requires a Party Wall Agreement. It depends on the complexity of the work. For example work like plastering the wall, drilling the wall of your house internally won’t require any party wall agreement. At the same time minor repairing work would not require any Party Wall Agreement. So, when do you need a Party Wall Agreement?
