This paper notes the challenges faced by surveyors outside London by the demands of implementing the new party wall legislation. It pays tribute to John Anstey’s guidance in this area and emphasises the importance of adopting a practical and common‐sense approach to the legislation. It cites a recent example where this approach was found to be successful and notes the continuing development of party wall expertise nationwide.
