Hello

Welcome to JA.

I am sorry to hear about your situation.

Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays.

I am sorry to hear about your situation.

If the police are unable to assist at the moment I suggest you apply to the local county court for a civil injunction. This is a court remedy that orders the man to stop such conduct and failing to do so can amount to a criminal offence.

However, before you do this, send the neighbour a cease and desist letter to warn him of your intentions unless he stops.

Please give the neighbour 14 days to stop the conduct.

You can obtain a “cease and desist” letter template from www.lawdepot.co.uk. That said you can a draft letter by your self too but ensure you make it known it is a cease and desist letter and he stops the conduct(ensure you spell out the conduct too) in question. Further it will be wise to remind him that his conducts falls within the definition given within Section 1 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 which is as unwanted conduct designed to cause the victim alarm or distress”. Hopefully the letter may well be enough to stop the conduct as an injunction is a serious legal remedy.

Do you understand what i have stated so far if yes i will proceed to discuss the next step in the event he does not listen to the contents within your letter?

Assuming the conduct continues after you send the letter then it would be up to you whether you want to apply for the injunction. My advice is to instruct a local solicitor to assist you with completing the relevant forms. Alternatively you can return to JA and open a new question and i or one of the other experts can assist you with regards ***** ***** the relevant forms.

I hope i have clarified the position.

Thanks and stay sage

My wife was cremated 3 weeks ago, being my Rock she stated ignore the threats etc.. having had various problems with this person.
I moved into this house.
Owned by my wife.about 5 years ago. The neighbour as been abusive along with his wife .
Saying I was a Lodger and didn't belong there.calling me a gypsy bastard etc .
Chris my now deceased kept telling me don't get involved.although words had been said between neighbour and myself.
About a week ago ,I heard the sound of ripping of foliage etc coming from our back garden.
It was the neighbour ripping our clematis down.
I asked him to stop .
And was told get back inside Gypsy boy and shut up as now my wife was dead, I would not be living there long as I would be evicted.
( not knowing my partner Chris) who was terminaly ill had married in a special wedding ceremony 6 weeks prior.)
On hearing these comments and being called Gypsy boy repeatedly .
I made some comments of a derogatory kind about both him and is wife, which possibly were racist.
This was done in the heat of the moment due to comments which he had made about me being evicted, and she was dead.
I have now to go to the local police station as they reported me for making a racial comment.
Please advise
