Hi. I live at Castle Hedingham Essex and the owner of the Castle owns all the woodland around my property Mr J Lindsey. He has an agent who is dealing with the removal of the timber. I have written to the agent about my concerns.
Ok - they are responsible for the cost of clearing the rubbish up.
You should get a number of quotes for getting this done -this forms your loss
You need to write and set out your losses and request a payment or the work cleared 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.
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.
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.
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.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Ok Thank you. You have confirmed that they will be responsible for a clean up should it be needed which has answered my enquiry.
