Line of junction notice
- are not built on at the line of junction; or
- are built on at the line of junction only to the extent of a boundary wall (not being a party fence wall or the external wall of a building),
Having been served with the notice, the adjoining owner must serve a notice indicating their consent. This stipulates that the wall should be built on half of the land of each owner or in another position that they may agree on, and that the expense of the wall shall be split between them depending on the use that has been, or is to be, made by them.
If the adjoining owner does not consent, then the building owner is only able to build the wall at their own expense and it must be entirely on their land. They may still, within 12 months, place below the level of the land of the adjoining owner projecting footings and foundations necessary for the construction of the wall. They must compensate any adjoining owner and any adjoining occupier for any damage to their property.
A template line of junction notice is as follows:
To: (Adjoining Owner)
I/We (Building Owner)
[name and number]
which adjoins your premises known as:
[name and number]
I/we hereby serve NOTICE on you
Under Section 1 (5)
[details of the works]
[name and details of surveyor]
