Can anyone please advise me what the best course of actionin my situation.

I came home after finishing work to find my neighbour had cut down a very tall fir tree which fell into my garden

smashing the fence to bits along with flattening all the plants down one side.

The fence was erected and paid for by me.

To add insult to injury he then drove of as I arrived home without any acknowledement of the incident.

I rent a housing association (ex local authority) property but look after my home and garden having put a lot of money

and effort into the garden in particular.

My neighbour owns his property (again ex LA) but it is in a state of extreme disrepair with a very overgrown garden and piles of debris everywhere.

Why he decided to chop a very tall tree down with no idea of the consequence is beyond me.

Can this beconstrued as negligence??

I approached the neighbour who stated he wouldn't be making any recompense

and as the tree fell in my garden it was up to me to shift it and to pay for the damage.

Can anyone advise please?

He is totally responsible for the repair/replacement of the fence as he damaged it, do you have house insurance that might help out with legal things? I would also inform your housing officer of what happened as well.

No very stupidly, I dont have any insurance (financial reasons due to marital split)

I think I will be doing the after the horse has bolted thing, and will be getting insured asap.

Thanks very much for replying.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
