The Party Wall Act came into force in September 1997, and it generally relates to works and alterations covering three particular types of work:
• Alterations to party structures (usually walls, but may also include floors)
• The construction of new walls near boundaries within six metres of a party structure or a neighbour’s building
• Excavations within six metres of a party structure or a neighbour’s building
Typical examples of work that is likely to be covered by the Act include:
• Cutting beams into a party wall as part of a loft conversion
• Removing chimney breasts that are attached to a party wall
• Excavating for the foundations to a new extension within 3 meters of a neighbouring or shared structure
• Underpinning a party wall to facilitate a basement extension
