Alex Watts :

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

You have tried speaking to the neighbour, which is what I would first suggest.

Alex Watts :

Second I would get a Solicitor to write a letter, say that he is parking on your kerb and not to. Otherwise you will take further action

Alex Watts :

If he still refuses then sadly you may need to issue proceedings to stop parking

Alex Watts :

You would need to complete forms N1

Alex Watts :

And N16a

Alex Watts :

You are asking the Court for an order that he not park there.

Alex Watts :

The Court will send the papers to the neighbour and list the matter for a hearing to see whether it is a contested matter.

Alex Watts :

If so the Judge will give directions for trial and decide whether an interim order is needed.

Alex Watts :

If the Judge grants an order and it is breached, this could be considered contempt of Court and he could be warned, fined or sent to prison

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer:

what type of solicitor should I approach about this?

Alex Watts :

You do not need a Solicitor. Its a small claim and so you do not need representation

Alex Watts :

Does that clarify?

Alex Watts :

Sorry, forgive me.

Alex Watts :

The Solicitor you need is just a litigation solicitor

Alex Watts :

The cost will be around £200 for a letter.

Customer:

you said get a solicitor to write a letter - what is the best type of solicitor to approach to do this

Alex Watts :

Sorry yes.

Alex Watts :

A civil litigation Solicitor

Customer:

that's great - thank you

Alex Watts :

or one that deals with neighbour disputes. A High Street solicitor can do this for you

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything else for you?

Customer:

No that's everything. thank you
