The Ability to Serve Notices and Party Wall Awards by Email

An order has been made by the Secretary of State to amend the Party Wall etc Act 1996 to permit the service of party wall notices and party wall awards by email.  Provided the recipient has stated a willingness to receive notices and awards etc by email.

This is an important development of the party wall process and has speeded up and greatly eased the problems of communicating with people quickly and efficiently in today’s modern world.  The official wording is the Electronic Communications, the Party Wall etc Act 1996 (Electronic Communications) Order 2016 which sets out the amendment to the Party Wall etc Act 1996.
