Is your question about noises,,
dogs or cats,
or them trimming the hedge?
What have the gaps in the hedge got to do with this apart fromallowing the dog through?
mostly about the dogs getting through and fouling our lawn. neighbour says we should look after hedge their side cause it is our responibility.
Haven't had a answer from you yet
Am I going to have an answer for my money
I am sorry, but this is not an instant service because weare all solicitors in practice. We do not sit online 24/7. We all have clientsand court and other users on this site and travelling and weekends and eveningsetc. We are often on and offline all day every day. Sometimes therefore youwill get an answer in minutes and sometimes it is hours. The site does give theimpression that experts will answer in nanoseconds will unfortunately, the siteis hosted in San Francisco and we are all based in the UK and we have nocontrol over site content.--------------------------------------------------------------------
They may like their side of the hedge looking a mess and youcannot compel them to cut it nor can they compel you
You also cannot do anything about a cat because a cat is classedas a free spirit and therefore it can come and go. Indeed, the cat can legallywreck your house and garden and you have no claim against the neighbour.
If you harm the cat, you will be prosecuted for cruelty.
If you harm the dog you would also be prosecuted for crueltyhowever the owner of a dog is responsible for the actions of the dog and thedog fouling and generally making a mess and digging burying bones etc iscommon-law nuisance.
This would be relatively easy to resolve by simply putting somechicken wire along the hedge assuming of course that the dog will not jump overthe top or find another route in.
If you don't want to have the expense of putting offence or wireup, you're remedy is to apply to court for an injunction to compel them to keeptheir dog under control. A solicitors letter warning them that if they do notdo so, you will apply to court for an injunction to compel them to keep the dogunder control and you were last the court to award costs against them.
There is always a risk with litigation and it is probably going tobe more risk-free and cheaper to put the fence of yourself and it is to go tocourt although, if you do go to court, you will probably indeed get the costsawarded against the neighbour. You can also threaten an action against thelandlord for allowing this to happen.
Does that answer the question? Can I assist further or answer anyspecific queries?
