Almost all terraced and semi-detached houses a loft conversion will require RSJ steels to support the additional loads. The shared wall with your adjoining neighbour(s) is called a Party Wall, which will require an agreement to insert the required RSJ supports. We will complete and send the relevant forms with the plans which will need to be signed by your adjoining neighbour(s). We also offer a full impartial Party Wall Survey free of charge with all our loft conversion projects.

The booklet has been produced by the Communities & Local Government Department to explain in simple terms how the Party Wall Act 1996 (“the Act”) may affect someone who either wishes to carry out work covered by the Act (the “Building Owner”), or receives notification under the Act of proposed adjacent work (the “Adjoining Owner”).
