Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Alex Watts : For now please let me know as I understand it, whether damage is currently occurring to your property? I assume you want them to cut the trees back?
No damage at the moment but I think if we have high winds there could be.Yes I want them to cut the trees back.
Alex Watts : Ok. Have you had a tree surgeon out to give you a quote for doing the work?
Alex Watts : Ok, do that and get 3 quotes, this forms your loss.
Alex Watts : You need to write and set out your losses and request they do the work as promised or pay for it within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
Alex Watts : If they do not then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/n001-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
Alex Watts : The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
Alex Watts : If the matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim and you will not need representation.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Thank you for your advice.
