12k subsidence, 4k internal flooding damage to furniture and 2 k other remedial works to drains
a surveyor has confirmed the subsidence
he has indicated that there is evidence that their sewer has been leaking over a long period of time and that has caused the fines to wash away and that has lead to the subsidence
we were having problems with the drains and as a result i dug up the garden. it was then we found large voids in the soil and around the sewer pipe. the water company inspected the damage and confirmed the sewer was broken. however they are now denying any liability whatsoever!
hi, i do not know with respect to the sewer in my garden. they did however reline the whole sewer in 2011. the sewer was broken in my garden
the sewer in the garden is the main sewer serving all of the houses in the terrace
yes, the main sewer runs across my garden
they failed to maintain their sewer and as a result of the breakages i have suffered subsidence to paths, walls and my garage floor/slab due to their leaking sewer
if i suddenly amend my claim to under 10k can that be objected too?
what about their costs to date?
yes but if the claim started above 10k what happens now if i amend to bring it under 10k?
does it matter what stage the claim has gone so far. i.e the fact that the defendant has served their defence etc
i am looking to amend my claim to bring it under 10k. the problem i have is that i had itemised various aspects of my claim i.e. a quote for the main repairs, figure for additional works, surveyors fees etc etc. the total of those came to well over 10k. what is the best way to amend my claim?
do i need to amend the claim i.e. change the figures etc
we have got as far as directions which have been filed at the court
hi do i need to give any explanation or do i just reduce the final sum claimed. as i asked above what do i do if the original quotes for the works add up to more than 10k? any amendments do they have to be struck through in red and any new figures in red?
hi on what form do i make the application and when i do do i just state i' i wish to amend my particulars of claim as attached'?
