If you own a terraced or semi-detached house then you are likely to share a wall with a neighbour. This is known as a party wall and to avoid any party wall disputes, any works that are carried out to the party wall will need to be included within a party wall notice according to the Party Wall etc Act 1996.

The Act sets out the process which needs to be followed if you are undertaking certain works to the party wall. In such circumstances, you will need the assistance of a specialist surveyor who will be able to guide you through the process without any problems. This will ensure that you do not receive any party wall disputes.

If, however, a party wall dispute arises, Osbornes has a team of specialist party wall solicitors who have experience in party wall ligislation and can advise you to achieve the desired result. At Osbornes we recognise that such a result can only be achieved when your legal advisor works in conjunction with your surveyor and we are very experienced in working with other professional advisors in such cases.
