ADVICE ON DISPUTES
Party Walls and Common Sense
In brief it is any boundary, floor, fence or wall that is jointly used by two or more parties - both parties have rights to the use of the Party Wall. The Party Wall Act relates to these rights and sets out a way of resolving any issues. Interestingly, the idea of the Party Wall is very old and is mentioned in Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' - we have been having problems with Party Walls for many years!
We have produced a number of reviews of books and articles regarding Party Wall issues:
