Hello and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 15 years’ experience. Please be aware that although I will endeavour to reply to you promptly, I am also in full time private practice and so I may not be available to respond immediately and it may also take me a few minutes to prepare a reply. The site will notify you as soon as I respond. I look forward to working with you to answer your question fully.
thank you for the above and I apologise for the short delay in reverting to you. Notwithstanding your comment above and I am pleased that events hopefully have moved in the positive direction, nevertheless to respond to your initial enquiry, in relation to walls which are not part of a building, a party wall would constitute a wall which is built astride the boundary line. A wall that is built up to the boundary line which is not part of the building but not over that boundary line so as to sit astride it would not constitute a party wall under the party wall act but instead would belong wholly to the landowner on whose land it is built
