The Party Wall etc. Act 1996 applies throughout England and Wales. 
The Act covers: 
New Building works at or astride the boundary between two properties. 
Structural work affecting an existing shared/party wall, including repairs, alterations, extending or reducing the wall, cutting into the wall and underpinning. 
Excavating, or constructing foundations within three metres of a neighbour's building where the new foundations will go deeper than the neighbour's foundations. 
Excavating, or constructing foundations within six metres of a neighbour's building where the new foundations will cut a line drawn downwards at 45 degrees from the bottom of the neighbour's foundations. 
If you are an owner proposing to undertake work you must find out whether the works are governed by the Act. If so, you must serve statutory notice (one or two months depending upon the works) on the adjoining owners and get agreement from them to the works, before you start. 
At SHP we can advise as to whether the works proposed would trigger the requirements of the Party Wall etc Act and establish whether service of notice is required, and if so, we can prepare and serve the notices for you.
