Party Walls - What Homeowners Need to Know

How to find out if your boundaries are Party Walls.

You will need access to your HM Land Registry office copies and filed plan and any historic Conveyance or Transfer Deed mentioned in the same.


If a Transfer Deed (TR1, Conveyance or TP1) does not specifically state who is responsible for a boundary then they are Party Walls and jointly maintainable.


Developers will often denote the boundary you are to maintain with an inwards “T” on the plan and make reference to the same in the Transfer clauses and definitions.


If there are no “T” marks, and no specific reference to who maintains a boundary, then they must be Party Walls.
