Alex Watts :

Hello my name is Alex and I will help you.

Alex Watts :

Have you complained to the Police or Council please?

JACUSTOMER-2vqhh5ly- :

I cant beleive you said this,i have already lodged compaints to the management company,now he is hounding me over a surcarge arrear,when i cant afford to pay the whole amount out right,i tried to negotiate,a breakdown payment monthly,he is going to send a debt agency around,i dont know what to do,but i am not spening 38,00 for a silly answer like this again,its a good way to get people spending money!for dumb answers,

JACUSTOMER-2vqhh5ly- :

this service is p[oor

Alex Watts :

That is not an answer. I need to know whether you have complained to the Police or Council please before i advise further.

JACUSTOMER-2vqhh5ly- :

Yes i have comlained to the management company,8xtimes explaing that to phone my tenants and demean me,threatening to send a debt agency around,and saying i go under ground,above all else is upsetting and derogatory

Alex Watts :

Do you kn ow why the management company wont do anything?

Alex Watts :

Have they said why they refuse?

JACUSTOMER-2vqhh5ly- :

No they just havent answerd my questions end of,

JACUSTOMER-2vqhh5ly- :

They seem to be very evasive,and i am trying to make an agreement to pay of the arrear,at 250,per month,temporarily,

Alex Watts :

Ok thank you for that.

Alex Watts :

You need to speak to the Council. If there is noise etc then you should speak with the Council as they have a legal obligation under the Environmental Protection Act

Alex Watts :

They will come out and investigate.

Alex Watts :

You could always take out an injunction from harassment. You can do this in the County corut.

Alex Watts :

You would need to complete forms N1

Alex Watts :

Alex Watts :

And N16a

Alex Watts :

http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n016a-eng.pdf

Alex Watts :

The Court would then consider the matter and decide whether or not to make an order.

Alex Watts :

If the Court does make an order and the neighbour breaches it then he will be in contempt of Court.

Alex Watts :

You could seek a committal on that breach and if brought back before the Court the neighbour could be warned, fined or sent to jail.

Alex Watts :

However sadly you can't make the management company take any action

Alex Watts :

It is a matter for them whether they do or not - I accept this is not ideal and you would hope they intervene

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

JACUSTOMER-2vqhh5ly- :
