    Harassment from Neighbour

    Jeffrey, Thanks I will go to the County Court. I also want to notify the neighbours mortgagees that if he excavates / resurfaces the shared drive, then he needs to serve a notice to me under the Party Wall Act 1996. If he fails to do, then can I use that as a starting point for the injunction ?.
