Hello my name is Alex and 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.
No he is wrong.
You are only liable if you were negligent in any way.
The truth is that this is an act of God and he must claim off his insurance.
You are only required to pay if you were negligent, ie you knew they were lose and did nothing
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Can I tell my neighbour this as he is quite an intimidating sort of man .....always in the right!
Yes indeed you can.
Put it in writing if you refer.
But he has no claim against you.
Can I use this information in a print out to show him?
Indeed you can.
Can I clarify anything else?
I don`t think you could be any more helpful, do you think I have enough information or do I need anything else?
I think you have everything.
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.
Please remember that I am always happy to help if you have future questions, even if I am in Court I can normally respond within a few hours. For future information, please start them with ‘For Alex W’.
