Would the average person look at the situation on the ground now and immediately conclude that the now removed and demolished hedge belonged to you?
What do you actually want to happen?
I’m sorry but some of the typing appears to have gone awry and I can’t understand what you are saying. What does this mean?
“Knowing thr only reason hr was sble to purchsse the property because of mr” and “In order to get s mortgsge. To which I paid”
Is there a mortgage on the property or not?
I apologise for the earlier post. It’s on the wrong thread. It does happen from time to time. Please ignore.
If you have photographs, they would be sufficient if they are clear enough to prove that she had demolished a hedge belonging to you and that is criminal damage. You should refer it to the police but don’t be surprised if the police say that this is a civil claim.
You can claim the cost of a new hedge and if she won’t pay it, take her to court for the cost. Unlike a criminal prosecution which has to be decided beyond all reasonable doubt a civil claim is decided on the balance of probabilities. If therefore you have evidence (photographs or witness statement) which shows that it’s more likely the hedge was yours than not, then your claim will succeed.
If you have house insurance, check the policy details because many policies have legal expenses insurance and if you have, it could pay the legal costs of any litigation.
Can I clarify anything for you? Please do not forget to rate the service positive. It’s an important part of the process by which experts get paid. We can still exchange emails.
