The bamboo on your neighbour's land which is causing damage to yours is considered Private nuisance matter. This is usually caused by a person doing something on their own land but becomes a nuisance when the consequences of their act or inaction extends to their neighbour. The remedy you will be seeking is an injunctive relief to require your neighbour to abate a continuing nuisance.
There are a number of remedies that you may pursue which include Damages. A claim for Damages may be sought by you to provide financial compensation which may include general inconvenience and distress, loss of enjoyment and/or cost of making other arrangements.
As legal action should ideally be used as a last resort, there are certain steps that should be taken initially to try and resolve this matter informally and without the need for Court intervention which can be expensive. It is recommended the following procedure is followed to try and progress this matter further:
1. Informal letter – if no informal reminders have been sent yet, one should be sent first to allow your neighbour to voluntarily settle this matter.
2. Letter before action – if informal reminders have been sent but have been ignored, the other party must be sent a formal ‘letter before action’ asking them to resolve this amicably. They should be advised that if they fail to do contact you in order to resolve this matter, formal legal proceedings will be commenced. This letter serves as a ‘final warning’ and gives the other side the opportunity to resolve this matter without the need for legal action.
