The neighboring property is derelict. The owner has already cost me £3,000. to repair the party wall after water damage from removing the front part of the roof. Today she has builders removing the back section of the roof, removing beams that leave holes in my wall, for water to penetrate my building. What can I do

Ok - then you need to write and ask them to carry out the work or say you will seek a Court order.If they refuse then you need to issue proceedings. You can do this using form N1: N16a: are seeking an Order to get the work done PLUS the damages for the cost so far. The court will list the matter down and decide whether to make the Order.If the Court does and they refuse this is contempt of Court which they could be warned, fined or sent to prison.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
