If you want to make a change to your home, and you have big ideas in mind, then there is the chance that you will want to do something that will affect a party wall that you share with your neighbor. Thanks to the party wall act St Albans property owners will need to serve notice to their neighbor to inform them of the work that needs to be done.
In the notice, you must include your own name and address, and also the address of the building in question if this is different. This may be the case if you are dealing with a commercial building, for example.
You should tell them that it is a notice under the act, so that they are aware of the type of document they have received. Then, you should state what you plan to do, and when you plan to start the work. By giving as much information as you can, you can ensure that your neighbor will have as few issues as possible when it comes to accepting your plans – and this means that things will run much more smoothly. Generally, getting legal advice is a good idea if you’re not completely sure, so this could be a good place to start.
