Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please confirm that the bush was wholly on your side of the boundary?
yes it was. I'm sure the neighbors will dispute this, Even if they allege that the bush had grown over by as little as 50mm do they have the right to attack and damage it while we were in the process of carrying out our two weekly maintenance by trimming it to ensure it doesn't grow over the boundary. I have video evidence of the neighbors actions that shows their only intention was to damage the bush and intimidate us.
What I can say is EVEN if it has grown over their side, they can cut back only that part on their side.
They can NOT cut anything on your side or it would be criminal damage.
I would report this to the Police as they have no justification to attack with a saw.
This may be possession of an offensive weapon or at least a public order offence.
I would therefore report this to the Police and they can investigate and prosecute where necessary
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
What possible action can be taken over the fact the neighbor threw branches at a 14 year old boy and acted menacingley towards a minor would this be justification for some sort of legal restrictive order to prevent this happening again
Unlikely to get a restraining order if this was the first time.
If it happened again then yes.
The neighbour faces a Community Order - he is unlikely to go to prison
Does that clarify?
Thanks very much Alex. Excellent Service!!!!!!!!!
