London Borough of Ealing
Party Wall London provides Party Wall services in the London Borough of Ealing.
Ealing Borough is a London Borough located in West London, where the Thames Valley meets metropolitan London between the West end and Heathrow Airport.
The borough consists of constituents such as Northolt, Brentham, Acton, Greenford, Perivale and Hanwell.
The Local authority is Ealing London Borough Council, located on Uxbridge Road.
Ealing is the third largest borough of London and is known to be one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the country. The statistical estimates of population growth within the next five years have made the demand for new homes clear to the council. To accommodate the growing community, the council have promised development of affordable homes for local people. With residential and business development being primarily concentrated in two development corridors (the Uxbridge Road and the A40) we can expect to see major housing expansion in the Acton and Southall regions.
It is possible that such new build projects proposed in the Borough of Ealing will be built in close proximity to existing properties. The Party Wall etc. 1996 Act not only coves matters relating to party walls but also covers excavation works which are within certain distance of a neighbouring property. Local residents should be made aware of their rights under the Party Wall Act when such excavations are proposed to be undertaken and we are able to provide that guidance for you. Contact us now for free, no obligation advice.
Regeneration of municipal housing estates are also proposed with the objective of improving quality of life for existing residents at Copley Close, Havelock, Green Man Lane and South Acton estates. This may involve repairing and or rebuilding floor/ ceiling partitions in flat dwellings. These partitions are recognised as Party Structures as they divide two properties. Party Wall London are able to represent Property Developers in such rebuild projects and advise accordingly with Party Wall matters. We are also able to advise and represent homeowners who have received a Party Wall Notice from a Property Development Company to make aware of their legal rights under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996.
A common misconception of Party Walls is that each party owns ONLY their proportional half of the wall. However, as the wall carries out an essential structural duty for both properties, both parties own the entire wall. Thus, it is imperative that you inform your neighbours what you plan on doing to this shared wall.
Party Wall London is able to advice you on projects which come under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. Some examples include: single storey rear & side extensions, loft conversions and chimney breast removals in Ealing.
