PBSC' is the registered trading name of Pearce Building Surveying and Consultancy Ltd - Registered Company No. 4826710
'Regulated by RICS'
If you are intending to undertake relevant Building Work on your Property: then you are known as the "Building Owner".
The Party Wall etc Act 1996 ("the Act") may encompass more aspects of building work than you might have expected, obviously there is the 'party wall' bit in the title, but what about the 'etc' : that also covers so much more:
work on an existing wall or structure shared with another property (section 2 of the Act)
building a free-standing wall or a wall of a building up-to or astride a boundary (section 1 of the Act)
excavating near (within 3 metres or 6 metres) of a neighbouring building (section 6 of the Act).
You must find out whether the work that you are intending to undertake falls within the Act. If it does, you must notify the Adjoining Owners.
At PBSC we can have a brief review of your proposals, without obligation, and explain to you what aspects (if any) will require Notices to be sent to the Adjoining Owners; initially we will need a full set of proposal drawings from you. If PBSC prepared your Planning or Building Regulation Drawings for you then we will automatically provide this information to you.
