I am 6 months pregnant and having to deal with a neighbour dispute that is stressing me out
( We have a gate into a complex with 6 houses where our house is. The person who owns the house next to the gate entrance has gone to court to make a claim of trespass as the wall has a couple of screws connected to his wall. They did this without even contacting us first (the gate has been there for 6 years by developed and in accordance with council planning permission). Now it looks like they are going to be unsuccessful with this claim, they are saying the real issue is noise and they will bring a claim for this. They are also now stating that they dispute the freehold ownership of the drive and they will make a claim for this (the deeds are quite clear), there are a couple more things they have said - none of which seem credible but all take time and money to defend. Both things we will be lacking with the arrival of our first child.
I have been looking round on the internet but can't find any help on whether we can prevent this at all. We have already had to incur costs for defending the trespass claim, which we can't claim back until this case is closed.
I was also thinking of going to Citizens Advice but not sure how much they can help other than get a lawyer - but this is costing each time they start a new chain of dispute. Anyone out there provide any advice on this - I would be much appreciated!!
