If you are building against a boundary wall in the area, you may need to consider this history.

Do I Need A Party Wall Surveyor?
Any construction projects, including those in Aldwych, require party wall surveyors if they include work on a boundary between two buildings as defined by the Party Wall Act of 1996.
What does a party wall surveyor do? They act independently to ensure building work is compliant with the law.
What is the Party Wall Act?
The Party Wall Act of 1996 regulates construction works involving boundaries between land or property owned by two or more separate entities that, perhaps, could have competing objectives.
The legislation ensures that all parties’ interests are protected by preventing building work that could undermine the structural integrity of shared walls or neighbouring property features.
Who pays for a Party Wall Surveyor?
Party wall surveyor costs in Aldwych, as with elsewhere, are typically met by the organisation that instigates any work. There may be an argument for asking other parties to contribute to costs if the work needs to be done because of defects or lack of repair on their part. Neighbours can also be asked to contribute if they ask for additional works to be done that will benefit them.
The key to success is having independent technical advice. We can provide this, and more, on any aspect of Aldwych Party Wall matters. Contact us to find out more.
