WHAT WORK IS COVERED BY THE ACT?

Though the Act says "Party Walls", it also says rather curiously "Etc." This is because the Act covers not just Party Walls.

The Act places a statutory obligation upon the building owner to serve a notice of intended works:-

"on the line of the junction." or -

"to the party structure" or -

"for excavations which extend below the foundations of the neighbouring owner’s structure that are within 3m or 6m of the proposed works"

it is therefore clear that the "Etc" in the title of the Act cover works that fall beyond the definition of "Party Wall" and includes these the wider terms above
