Are you planning to undertake some structural changes to your Wood Green property or boundary wall?
Is your Wood Green property a flat, a terrace or semi-detached?
And is the proposed work going to impact a wall shared with an adjoining Wood Green property?
If the answer to these three questions is ‘yes’, you will have to follow the Party Wall Act of 1996.
The Party Wall Act gives Wood Green property owners a clear process to follow so that all the owners of the Wood Green properties who share the party wall, are justly protected as building work goes ahead. It aims to reduce conflict and ensure everyone’s rights are protected.
Any work to your Wood Green home or commercial property that involves increasing the size of the party wall, cutting into a shared wall, modifying it, rebuilding it or excavating close to it will be covered by the Party Wall Act.
The Party Wall Act applies whether the shared wall in question is inside or outside your Wood Green property and even covers shared ceilings and floors between flats.
