Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is***** hope you are well today. I am a qualified Solicitor, and I will be able to help you by providing you with an answer to your question today. I specialise in UK and Irish Law. I am not always online but rest assured if I do not respond immediately I will respond when I return.
Is there anything else you feel is relevant to your question or anything else you would like to add before we continue?
In this case, I would advise you to make a small claim to court against your neighbour. You should write ‘Letter before claim’ at the start of your letter to show this is a formal letter. Your letter should include:
your name and address
a summary of what’s happened
what do you want the person or business to do about it
how much money do you want - like the cost of repair or a replacement - and how you’ve calculated that amount
a deadline for the reply - usually 14 days
that you’ll start court proceedings if you don’t get a reply
You should also say that you and the defendant both have to follow the court’s rules on what to do.
You should say: ‘I refer you to the Practice Direction on pre-action conduct under the Civil Procedure Rules, and in particular, to paragraphs 13-16 which set out the sanctions the court may impose if you fail to comply with the Practice Direction.’
However, if you don’t get a reply or you’re not satisfied with it, you can start your small claim. Print and download this form: Form N1
If you need help with the N1 claim form, you can contact the County Court Money Claims Centre. You’ll need your case reference.
