What are the laws in England when it comes to boundary walls?
It’s not often be we do come across from time to time neighbours disputing what rights they have to boundary walls, this is often a sticking point when the boundary wall separates and divides a driveway.
The Party Wall Act 1996
This act only applies to England and Wales and was set up to help define access to an adjoining properties, works and boundary to boundary proximity issues. You’ll find that the act is very specific and provides all the framework needed for resolving and disputes and issues that may arise to party walls and indeed excavations near neighbouring buildings.
Talking to neighbours
Before works start on a driveway then it’s always a good idea to discuss the work that will take place so that they can have input should they wish to. A happy neighbour always makes for a smoother, hassle free driveway installation.
