I can wait, but I would have thought that it was a fairly straightforward matter. How long do you think it will take to get an answer please? David.
Thank you for your reply, most helpful. Would it really cost over £1000 to take her to the Small Claims Court? Or is that not appropriate?
I was hoping that the threat of Court action would change her mind, It is not as though she cannot afford it, the family run the biggest Funeral Directors outfit in Chesterfield.. The reasons she gives for refusal are that as her mother is the only person who lives there, and she is 93, they don't use the roadway and her mother is not likely to be there much longer! This ignores the fact that they have lived there for thirty odd years and are probably responsible for most of the damage that needs repairing. She is also ignoring the fact that the carers who look after her mother have already complained about the state of the road.
We have also explained that if, when her mother does die, she wants to sell the house it will sell more easily and for a better price if the roadway is in good condition.
Thank you, ***** ***** very sensible, I shall include the replies from JA in my next (& only) letter to her.
Lets hope she sees sense!Regards, David.
