Hi my holiday apartment in spain has been damaged by a leak from the apartment above me, both owners are uk citizens, and we both live in england. I need to take legal action to get the cost of the damage back from the owner above because he has said he will only pay to fix the problem in his apartment and because its a lot I should pay to repair the damage caused in mine.
Can I take my case to a court in the UK.
Hi the bottom line is I suppose that I found your answer of general help but not specific and so to really help me it would be better if it was more specific to the problem I have. For example if I sue the owner of the holiday home in spain that lives above me for my damage he has caused and i sue him as discussed through the county court process how likely is it that he can just wriggle out by saying that it should be dealt with in spain.I can tell you that whilst it happened in spain he has sent me emails and texts from the uk and me to him from the uk as i know he has instructed builders from the uk in spain to do work and so it is quite clear that he operates from uk and handles all issues with spain from there. and we are both uk residents ?i hope you can give me the confidence that he can not wriggle out of at least having to answer in court and let them decide whether he should pay me or notthanksAlan
