Alex Watts : Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Alex Watts : No.
Alex Watts : This is because I assume you have not rented the house out so not suffered any loss of rental.
Alex Watts : But can you claim damages, sadly not.
Alex Watts : You have no loss save for loss of use.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please
So am I correct in saying that there is nothing I can claim back for the land I have not had?
Is this due to it being a coucil property rather than a private landlord?
Alex Watts : You can claim back the land yes.
Alex Watts : But you can't claim compensation for it being in the wrong place.
Alex Watts : Does that help?
What about a rent rebate of sorts? I have paid rent on that land that someone else has had the use of that they have deliberately moved. Is there nothing I can do?
Alex Watts : Sadly not, you are just after possession,
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything?
no, thanks for your help
