The Party Wall Act of 1996 sets out that when we make any alterations to our home impacting a shared wall or boundary, we have to issue a Party Wall Notice to our Welwyn Garden City neighbours.
Having to serve a Party Wall Notice is a law that makes sense to our national sensibility. There is a familiar maxim that states ‘an Englishman’s home is his castle’. We are a country that takes home ownership very seriously and in Welwyn Garden City, there is added pride in belonging to a historically significant and beautifully designed town.
So it is no wonder that when we begin developments and improvements on our Welwyn Garden City home, our neighbours have a vested interest and deserve to be informed.
The Party Wall Notice lets the adjoining Welwyn Garden City property know exactly what is happening and when.
A Party Wall Notice would generally include:
- Your name and your Welwyn Garden City address, as well as your neighbour’s details
- What you are proposing to do to the Party Wall of your Welwyn Garden City property
- The date that building work will begin
