If you’re worried about the party wall act Wood Green properties need to know about before they start on a party wall, then you should get some professional advice. Although you don’t need to inform your neighbor if you are only doing some minor work on your wall, the actual definition of what “minor” is can often be interpreted differently by different people, so it is important that you are absolutely sure that you can carry out the work without serving a party wall notice.
If you don’t know what counts as minor work, then the best thing to do would be to ask for the advice of a surveyor. Thanks to the fact that they have been involved with many similar projects in the past, you can be sure that they will know whether it is a good idea for you to serve notice or not. If you’re in any doubt, then you may find that it is better to discuss it with your neighbor first. Chances are they will be happy for you to go ahead and there will be no problem, but it is always worth checking, as this means that it is much less likely that there will be issues any further down the line.
