Entries for the ‘Party Walls’ Category
Is quite often not as easy as it looks as most walls do not have a very helpful plaque on them like this one which we spotted in Bermondsey on the side of a building we had been asked to survey and advise a freeholder on [not a Party Wall job - service charge issue!]. [...]
A party structure is used to describe other elements of a building that subdivide two ownerships, for instance the floor between apartments could be considered as a party structure.
A party wall divides the buildings of two different owners. In most cases the boundary line between the properties runs along the centre line of the wall but not in all cases. A party wall can stand astride the boundary and this is typically the case for houses and buildings that are semi-detached or terraced.
