planning problems - damage done
I have a neighbour who is converting a loft into a 3rd bedroom. For some reason, his builder has knocked holes in the wall between the 2 houses, without asking my permission. Wife noticed this when she went to open the attic hatch and had debris falling on her head. Phoned Liverpool City Council about this, to ask if he has the permission to carry out this conversion, and was told that he may not need it and the work inspection is not being carried by one of their inspectors, but possibly a private one, so they have nothing to do with this. Find this very strange. I think this conversion is illegal and unsafe, as not only are there holes in wall, but hair line cracks on my side of the wall, because of the drilling and hammering. I want to make a claim for the repair of the damage done to my property.
Hello, I would like some advice please on two things; If there is 3 counts against a defendant and they have been found not guilty on Count 1 and 2 however the jury can not meet the requirement of a majority verdict on the third count, will the defendant face re-trial on all three counts are just the third count? Also is it a mandatory requirement in criminal courts that when the jurors go for deliberation that they are provided with the judges notes on the indictments and legal points they must consider?
