What is a party wall agreement and do I need it for my hip to gable conversion?
Party wall is an adjoining wall between properties. You need a party wall notice if any work to be done affects the wall, floor or ceiling of the adjoining property. The agreement has to be signed by the owners of the properties on either side of the walls. It is required for terraced or semi-detached properties in Brighton that share a wall with another property, therefore, you need it for your hip to gable conversion.
