During and after having the old part (new extension over garage

Customer Question

During and after having the old part (new extension over garage 15 years ago) of our 1930's semi re-roofed due to constant leaks & failed repairs our neighbour has thrown accusations galore that our roofer has been on his side of the roof & caused leaks everywhere. We have been as helpful as we can & our roofer has been great & as goodwill carried out free of charge works (stating this is not an admittance of fault) Roofer assessed his roof & said his roof is old & needs replacing & that is why we did it . However it doesn't seem enough. Our neighbour is now saying he has terrible leak in bedroom & that the tiles, lead & a roof batten from behind the shared Chimney have been broken by our roofer. We have asked the roofer to come & fix but he is currently on another job . He said that he would come asap. Our neighbour has constantly threatened us with legal action & we have said that he can use his 'master builder' that he says has assessed his roof & we will pay half. His quote was enormous & our roofer as goodwill to us said he would fix for a lot less so neighbour wants our roofer. The Council said our roof work was of the highest quality he'd seen in a while & happy with what has been done. Our neighbour has made our life hell for years. He has since start of roof work subjected us to verbal abuse night & day. Once subjecting us to a 3 day & night vitriol of abuse over a weekend starting at midnight on a Friday carrying on through the night. I was a wreck on Monday at work. We never retaliate. We communicate through email only, so we have evidence if we need it. I feel at breaking point & don't know how to proceed. I'm at wits end & it's affecting my marriage & well-being. How do I make him stop.
