A Building Owner intending to carry out certain work has a strict legal obligation to serve notice in writing upon any Adjoining Owner who may be affected by such work.
It is of paramount importance that notices are served correctly in accordance with the Act. Failure to do so can result in significant delays to the proposed works.
DO I NEED TO SERVE NOTICE?
If you are proposing to construct a wall on the line of junction, undertake works to existing party or party fence walls or are intending to excavate and pour foundations within 3/6 metres and to lower depth than the foundations of any structure or building belonging to an Adjoining Owner, notices will need to be served in accordance with strict requirements of the Act.
