Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
Can I please ask you to give me some more detailed information regarding this matter so as to allow me to work with you and help resolve your enquiry.
Where is the cable ?
Thank you for that additional information, that will be helpfull in allowing me to advise you today.
If the wire is on the side of your own property, then no, no-one can cut off your cable wires. To do so is criminal damage. That can be reported to the police.
Looking at the photos the wire appears to be completely attached to your brickwork and not on the white, so they have no excuse to even touch your cable.
Can I assist or clarify anything further?
Yes, that would be classed as neighbour dispute if you were to sell the property.
Yes, it is still a dispute between two neighbours.
Thank you for using Just Answer and for allowing me to assist you with your legal enquiry. I am pleased I was able to be of assistance. Please do not hesitate to come back to me for further advice on this or any other legal matter. It will be my pleasure to be able to assist you again.
As the cable was on your wall, you could send a solicitors letter advising of the “criminal damage “ caused by them, and seek payment form them to reinstall the cable. You could advice that you will not seek further legal action against them if they agree.
Alternatively, you could simply go ahead and do it yourself.
The former option would be seen as a neighbour dispute.
As previously advised, from your photos,myhe cable does appear to be on your property so she should have no reason to touch it.
The choice is yours whether to speak to her first to sound her out . Or you can send the letter and speak to the police. Only you can make that choice.
Understood, then looks like you need to take legal action as advised earlier.
You should look for a civil litigation firm.
The law society site can help you find a local one.
It may be helpful to instruct a local solicitor who specialises in this area of law. You can find a local firm using the Law Society website. www.lawsociety.org.uk
Once on that website, you can click on the find a solicitor option located just above the Law Society logo. Select quick search, then select the area of law required and enter your post code. A list of local firms will then be displayed.
If you want to complain of the damage to the police that can also be done.
Your welcome, good luck.
