hello and thank you for taking the time
where does she stand legally and what should she do next ?
Many thanks, XXXXX XXXXX really what we thought, nice to hear we were on the right path.
what should my sister in Laws next step be in response to the e-mail stating she will also involve a solicitor for the "breach & trespass of my boundary wall" AND involve Planning enforcement for the "break and trespass of my boundary wall which will invalidate the certificate of Lawfulness"
I would quite simply say ”thank you for your email of the X date. Please make all future correspondence in writing as I will no longer reply to emails due to the contentious nature of the matter. I look forward to receiving correspondence your solicitor and when I do get it, I will seek legal advice and revert directly to your solicitor” check the house insurance to see if there is legal expenses cover that would pay for the cost of this. If there is, check with the insurance company that this is covered and it is covered, add-on to the end of the letter “I have checked with my insurance company and they have advised me that I have legal expenses cover which will pay for the legal costs of any litigation. Yours sincerely.” If their solicitor writes then take the correspondence to a solicitor and deal with it. Until then, there is little point in getting stressed The reason for not replying to emails is that people fire them off willy-nilly because they are so easy. People will also whinge and moan and blow hot air without actually doing anything and that serves no purpose whatsoever. If anything is going to happen, it needs to be done now, not later. Many people will prattle on for months threatening solicitors (which is stressful in itself) and not actually do anything
