I have spoken to the owners of the house and asked them to have it removed. They claim they have been unable to contact either the builder or the scaffolding contractor. I have emailed the builder and written to the owner who have written back to me.My email to the builder and my letter to the owners have also asked them to remove the scaffold as soon as possible. I can attach the letter if required.
If the neighbour refuses to remove it you need to get an injunction.
You will need to complete form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf
And N16a http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n016a-eng.pdf
The Court will then list the matter for a hearing and decide whether to make an injunction
You may be able to get a Solicitor, unlikely on legal aid because of the changes
If you have to pay a Solicitor and win, you can also ask for costs
But you can get an emergency injunction, ie Monday even though it is bank holiday
If the neighbour refuses to comply he would be in contempt of Court and could be warned, fined, or sent to prison
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
