The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 can be a real minefield for home owners.
Legally speaking, it provides a strong framework for neighbours to resolve disputes over building works and excavations which are on or near a shared wall or boundary. Practically speaking, its many obligations and requirements need careful management to avoid serious neighbourly discord, unnecessary costs and extensive hold-ups to your project.
