Re: Neighbours claims after building work unreasonable?

Hi everyone, thanks so much for the continuing advice. We offered to meet them - they refused saying that it hadn't really worked before so they'd prefer email. They have also now said that they are taking us to small claims court unless we offer a reasonable sum. We offered to clear Wisteria oursel...

Re: Neighbours claims after building work unreasonable?

Ok so say we agree to remove dead wisteria and wires. Surely we don't have to replace wires for them to train a new plant up?

Re: Neighbours claims after building work unreasonable?

Thank you all for your advice. We have tried talking to them reasonably about things over the course of the work but to no avail. I like the idea of a chat in the pub but in reality i don't know. We are so stressed with the build and our financial issues anyway that we feel we cannot take more stres...

Neighbours claims after building work unreasonable?

We could really do with some good advice on this upsetting situation with our neighbours. We are currently renovating our new home (not living there yet) and have just received three quotes between £5000-£8000 from garden landscape companies from our neighbours for what they consider is the damage w...
