No Not by Solicitor. However I have informed the neighbour to do this on several occasions both verbally and in writing. I have also informed the neighbour about the distress and inconvenience that this is causing me. In all the conversations Neighbour have always acknowledged my 'Right of Way' yet continues to obstruct.
It is also worth mentioning that Neighbour is a large family and involves several different cars. The actual threat of violence was made one of the adult sons in the family.
Could you give an idea on possible pitfalls in my case or does it look straight forward as you seem to be suggesting. Also, how long this process might take and likely costs. Also, are you able to suggest any solicitors who are experienced in this field. In my investigations so far most solicitors seem not to be interested in neighbour disputes. The one who is willing is suggesting several thousand pounds with £1000 upfront even to start the conversation. This is prohibitive for me. My postcode is NW9 0BA
few more clarification. (i) Will the injunction include the removal of wall that is protruding into the shared drive. I have already asked the neighbour to stop further work. (ii) For the names of defendants, is it sufficient to address this to the property owners as show in land registry or do I need to include owner of each car also (iii) what percentage of £5000 recoverable (iv) The fact that this has gone on since 2006 is that likely to go against me or in my favour
Just one final point. Is there any benefit in my continuation of pursuing individual incidents of blockage through police as act of harassment under PFHA '97 as most of these blockages are done deliberatly just to cause distress. So far police have not done anything meaningful.
Thankyou so much. This short conversation has made my head a lot lighter. Wishing you a very happy new year.
I did have one more clarification re the extension. Neighbour has got planning permission for the extension. At the time of planning permission I did not check if it was protruding the share drive. So did not raise any objection. I only realised it after they had laid the foundation as I was unable to reverse my car into the garage without hitting the foundation wall. It was at that point I raised the objection. He has stopped the building work since then. Is the grant of planning permission in any way in Neighbours favour.
