    What is a party wall?

    If you live in a semi-detached or terraced house, you’ll share one or more walls with your neighbour. This is what’s known as a party wall.

    Party walls typically separate buildings belonging to different owners.

    Since the Party Wall Act came into force throughout England and Wales in 1996, homeowners have had to follow a strict procedure when building work involves a party wall or party fence wall (garden wall).

    The Act is designed to minimise – and ideally avoid – disputes by making sure neighbours are aware of the proposed work in ample time. If the owner of the adjoining property doesn’t provide their consent in writing, then a surveyor will determine when and how the works will be carried out.


    Why do you need a party wall drainage survey?

    A party wall drainage survey is a detailed inspection into the potential disruption or damage caused to a neighbouring property.

    Though these surveys are a crucial part of the surveying process when building work is due to commence, they are frequently overlooked – which can lead to all kinds of problems later on.

    For example, the building work you’re having done at your property could affect the properties on either side, causing ground movement. If this happens, it can impact the functionality and performance of the drainage systems.

    Having a party wall drainage survey carried out by one of our certified surveyors will determine what state the drains are in before construction work begins. Usually, a build-over CCTV survey will also be required on the property that’s being renovated or built on, whereas the neighbouring properties will need a pre and post-conditional drain survey. This will verify that the building work hasn’t impeded the drainage infrastructure.
