Alex Watts : Do it give you access or order the neighbour to give you access please?
Customer:

I need access to neighbour garden to repair gutter of my house

Alex Watts :

Yes I understand that

Alex Watts :

Is the order allowing you access or ordering your neighbour to give you access?

Customer:

I do not have apply for the order yet

Alex Watts :

If the neigbour refuses then you make an application to commit your neighbour to prison

Alex Watts :

This would be breach of a Court order and contempt of Court

Alex Watts :

So if the neighbour refuses you make an application to commit outlining the breach

Alex Watts :

The Court can then warn, fine or send the neighbour to prison

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer:

Can I transpass on his garden without his consent if he refuse the Court order?

Alex Watts :

No.

Alex Watts :

Unless the Court Order gives you that permission

Customer:
