Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
I have checked and it appears all questions have been answered. If you would like to ask your follow up here please?
If they repair and it is a proper repair then that is the end of the matter.
You can not claim for something you have not lose.
If it is a poor repair you can ask them to replace
But if its a good job that is the end of the matterC
Can I clarify anything for you?
If they offered a replacement, you accepted then that is a contract.
You could sue for breach of contract
Does that clarify?
Does that help?
You sue the person who agreed to replace which I assume is the builder
You don't - its under negligence
No contract needed
Or just sue both the neighbour and builder
Then you have no doubt it is the right Defendant
Yes, this is why you sue.
You asked for a replacement and they repaired. You therefore sue for the whole replacement cost
Does that now answer all of your questions?
But you have not suffered any loss as a result of trespass?
You can't claim damages if you have suffered no loss
If you did not suffer a loss and I assume they did not physically enter your home, then no.
You can sue for trespass, but what loss did you suffer? None whatsoever
The Judge may give you Judgment but zero damages
Yes, I am sorry that this is the position - but I can only tell you what the law states.
If this answers your question could I invite you leave feedback on my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.

Well not really - if they didnt break in.
Trespass is NOT a criminal offence
But I can only tell you what the law is.
