Thanks kindly. The owner of the car is talking about now taking legal action and has left the car on the spot since the occurrence claiming the leak has now caused damp in the car and is basically saying it is now a write off due to the damage as we did not agree to pay him GDP500 at the beginning for repairs. Its a foreign car and has no insurance.
To be clear then, as this is classed as an act of god then there is no liability as if this goes to court as i suspect he will try and claim for stress, loss of the car etc.
It was his responsibility to have insurance and as he did not then with this being an act of god the liability does not lie with myself or the owner of the flat where the car was parked.
Hi thanks for this.
The guy is persistent with me as I am the only owner he can get hold of. I have given him details of the owner where he parked the car but the guy is ignoring him and not replying for obvious reasons. Apologies to ask the same question but he is now wanting to go to court, he is citing the satellite dish was not fitted correctly and this is why the bricks fell. He is only going for me as he thinks as the satellite dish wire went to my apartment its my responsibility.
1) Would they have a case to say the dish was not fitted properly and that's why the masonry fell? He cites other dishes have not been damaged.
2) If it goes to court would he have a case to say he has been stressed by the incident, loss of car etc. I know these ambulance chasers try and claim for all sorts now. He has already said this prevented him fro seeing his family at Christmas.
3) He is asking for my insurance policy and an address in the UK. (I don't live in the UK currently). I am assuming I would not put this through my insurance as he was not insured in the first place.
I want to send him one final email to say this is the legal advice, its not my responsibility, please stop harassing me and if you want to go to court that's your decision.
If he does go to court want to be sure that i am not in the wrong here and could be liable.
