3 Types of Party Wall Notices
Party Structure notice
This is predominantly served to gain consent to insert steel beams into a shared wall for terrace and semi-detached properties. It is also served to request consent for construction works affecting a structure that is owned by a neighbouring property.
Notice of Excavation
This is served to request consent to excavate for foundations within 3m of your neighbours structure and to a greater depth than their respective foundations.
Line of Junction notice
This is served to gain consent to build your extension flush with or directly astride the boundary line separating yours and your neighbours land.
If the owner of your neighbouring property consents to the party wall notices, you are welcome to progress with construction works. If your neighbour dissents to the party wall notices served, you will be required to appoint a party wall surveyor prior to the commencement of construction. We are happy to recommend a number of extremely helpful party wall surveyors should your neighbour decide to request their appointment. We recommend speaking with your neighbours as early as possible, to discuss your proposal, answer any questions and alleviate any concerns they may have.

Definately RecommendedUsed freedom architects for some (what i thought) complicated work I wanted to do to my home and I couldn’t be any happier with their service. Philip came over, very polite and professional. He made the whole process so much easier and clearer. Any questions I had were answered. Planning went through with no issues and they helped every step of the way.
