Yes you can, but beware. If you make a mistake your Notice may be invalid and therefore you may not offer the protection of the Party Wall etc Act 1996 that you had hoped for.
The obvious question is why you would want to take on this task yourself?
The savings are low and the risks are high.
Further, if you are not well versed with the Party Wall etc Act 1996 you may struggle to understand what you need include all the necessary details. Some Notices require drawings to be attached. Do you which drawings are required for which Notices? Probably not.
If your Notices are incomplete and your neighbour dissents and subsequently appoints their own Surveyor, expect that Surveyor to ask for the required drawings. He will likely charge by the hour you for requesting the drawings. Drawings that would already be there if you had instructed an Specialist Party Wall Surveyor in the first instance. So for the sake of saving £50 your may have cost yourself a few hundred pounds.
