Looks like the solicitors will have to get involved on this one then, as I will not be backing down on the eyesore and the danger he has put me in. After going through solicitors myself over something similar, and because I didn't want to be bullied, I can say that it is likely to cost you an awful...

Cheers Conveyancer...Glad to hear your problem got sorted. He is going to check with the police and it would be great (and cheap!) if they installed a camera. I am hoping that if he is allowed to put one up that will have the same result that you got without the hassle of taking it any further.

"My suggestion to all those who are annoyed with visiting cats is to go find a place up in the hills away from neighbors. Then you will only have to deal with mountain lions"....not sure how you classify animals in the USA but over here a mountain lion is a cat...a blooming big one :wink:

hzatph and WRS...thank you for your replies.Its a shame that anyone has to use CCTV to protect their property but in this case watertight evidence is required hence the need for a camera. He has just got to be careful that he doesn't upset any of the neighbours, who at the moment say they are happy ...

My friend isn't connected to the internet and the VCR he has looks like he got it when they first came out....its a top loader! After ...

Thanks for the advice both of you, I will pass it on. As he is going to be setting the camera up to look out at his front garden/drive I have advised him to contact his local police to check what he can/can't do..the last thing he needs is to be accused of filming someone who is just walking past.

Can anyone help?

Hi all. Am asking this on behalf of a friend who has been having problems. His garden has been vandalised on a couple of occasions and his car (and also a number of others in his street) has been damaged. He wants to install CCTV but doesn't have a lot of money and is not very technical either. Does...

Is there anyone else in your road with a shed in the front garden? If so perhaps you could ask them if they needed planning permission.

As our front gardens are open plan...
