I’m hoping to deepen my crawl space for a number of reasons, primarily easier access as its only 300mm and also to encapsulate it.
My question is with the Party Wall Act. So with section 28 below, do I need to advise my neighbour regardless or only if I’m going further than the foundations which isn’t my intention. If the inspection pit shows I would need to go beyond the foundations then surveyor will be called in. (Cost of under pinning will probs shelve the idea anyway)
28 What does the Act say if I want to excavate near neighbouring buildings?
If you plan to:
excavate, or excavate for and construct foundations for a new building or structure, within 3 metres of any part of a neighbouring owner’s building or structure, where any part of that work will go deeper than the neighbour’s foundations.
Thanks in advance for you time and help.
