Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question today. I am reviewing it, please give me a moment.
Have they refused to do so, thus far?
Ok. Can you ask them to confirm in writing they will make good any damage?
No. The presumption is that they would make good any damage anyway. That is because you have allowed them access to your land.
Had it not been for that then the damage would not have occurred.
But if you can get something in writing, the better. It does not need to be witnessed.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
If not, I would appreciate a 5-star rating for my answer. If you need anything further I am available for a follow up at no extra cost.
If they clear the mess up then no.
If they are working within building times permitted by council then no.
Does that clarify?
Ok. You could potentially.
You need to write and set out your losses and request compensation within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.
If they do not compensate you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: www.moneyclaim.gov.uk or by completing form N1 http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/hmctsformfinder/n1-eng.pdf and take it to your local County Court.
The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.
If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim so you will not need legal representation. Over this value, you would need representation for trial.
No problem. Please take a moment to rate before you go.
