Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 15 years’ experience. Please be aware that although I will endeavour to reply to you promptly, I am also in full time private practice and so I may not be available to respond immediately and it may also take me a few minutes to prepare a reply. The site will notify you as soon as I respond. I look forward to working with you to answer your question fully.
I am very sorry to read of the above and I imagine how frustrating it must be. I will certainly try to clarify the position for you.
May I confirm if you have been in contact with the local authority to date please?
I'm following up on the above. Without some further information from you as above, I am limited in what I can say on the matter but in the hope it is helpful nonetheless, I will provide you with the following broad answer. If you are able to kindly provide me with the above further information or if you have any further questions generally, I will be delighted to expand on the following - please just reply back to me in this case:
Notwithstanding the above, in general terms in the first instance you would attempt to resolve matters with the neighbour amicably as you have done. If this does not produce results you can consider making a complaint to the councils environment department. Where an individual is taking action or by way of neglect that is encouraging vermin then the council will send an officer to investigate and if they are satisified as regards ***** ***** they can serve an enforcmenet notice which is an instruction to take action or stop taking action. If the notice is ignored then the individual can be prosecuted.
You can also seek an injuction privately in the county court against the neighbour but this incurs court fees so the above approach is usually the easiest
I hope the above is of some assistance but if you have any further questions, please revert to me.
I trust the above was of assistance and that you do not have any follow up questions for now. If there is anything else I can help with please reply back to me though.
Thank you again for visiting JustAnswer and see you again in the future I hope.
