Party Wall Act 1996

  • What rights and obligations does it create?
  • What happens if its procedures are not complied with?
  • How to win a party wall appeal

Time limits and procedure for an appeal

  • Establishing that the award was made without jurisdiction
  • If there was jurisdiction to make the award, persuading the court that it should be set aside or varied on grounds of limitation, procedural unfairness, or substantive error
  • Recovering the costs of the appeal
