Neighbour refurbishing house. Contractor damages fence at one end by breaking fencepost with digger. A few days later contractor knocks down fence at the other end breaking another post and smashing a panel. Fence is joint responsibility. Despite promises, a year on neighbour still hasn't repaired. During February storms another chunk of fence lands in my garden. neighbour refuses to say when he will repair the fence (but he "will eventially") Neighbour breaks off diplomatic relations. Emails go unanswered, Recorded delivery letters asking for a commitment returned by GPO.
Got my own contractor to repair at a cost of £480. Need to recover money from neighbour but he will of course ignore the invoice when I send it.
If he refuses to pay, can I sue him for £480 ?
