To enable me to answer your query, please provide me with some further information about your legal issue and how you want a lawyer to help you.
You can bring a claim under the tort of nuisance for the damage that your neighbours have done to your property, however you appear to have explored that claim and spent significant sums of money on legal fees already.
This country’s civil law only compensates mental distress in a very limited number of cases. These include:
Being inconvenienced and suffering emotional upset due to another party’s poor behaviour does not sound in damages.
Even if you are involved in an accident, you cannot claim damages for being “shaken-up” unless you also sustained a physical injury such as soft tissue injury to your neck (also known as “whiplash”).
You may have a claim under the Protection From Harassment Act 1997, but the pother party's behaviour must have involved threats of violence or legal action or stalking-type behaviour.
There has to be an accident or an assault resulting in mental injury such as Post traumatic Stress Disorder. The mental costs of litigation do not sound in damages.
You may have a claim in defamation, but the limitation period to issue court proceedings is only one year from the date that the statement was first published.
Again, your claim will be limited to financial losses of finding a replacement home.
I will put through an offer of a Premium Service Phone Call so we can discuss matters in detail.
Yes, I am trying to enter my contact details, but the site is not letting me!
