Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Have you reported this to the Council at all please?Alex
Yes you do have a case but Environemntal Health need to consider this as a complaint under the Environmental Protection Act. Indeed you can take civil action.
You can get a local solicitor to write and ask them to stop the nuisance or say you will go to court.
If they refuse then you can issue proceedings for them to stop. You would need to complete form n1
The court would list the matter for hearing and decide whether to make an order preventing or limiting them doing this.
If the court does and they breach it this could be contempt of court which they could be warned, fined or sent to prison.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
You can go to the solicitor now. The cost would be around £250. But EH is free. That is why I suggested it.
Does that clarify? Alex
Ok, then you should send a solicitor letter and then issue proceedings. It is a legal nuisance.
Does that clairfy? Ale.
You can ask the court for costs when you get the injunction, but the application for injunction and the injunction itself must be personally served.
To get an interim probably about £1000 and contested hearing about £10,000
No, you can't get legal aid for this which is why I suggested Environemntal health again. Alex
Yes you can. You don't have to follow through.
Does that assist? Alex
Indeed. I am sorry it's not better news. If I could invite you to rate my answer before you go today please, otherwise the site does not credit me for the time spent with you today. Thanks and good luck. Alex
No, I thought it was fine. But they are paid to be tough.
