A party wall is a wall that separates two buildings which are owned by different parties. It can also include a garden wall or a boundary wall. The wall is considered a “party wall” because it is shared by the owners on either side.

A party wall survey involves assessing the condition of the party wall and determining the impact that the proposed construction work may have on it.
