Go and ask them what your rights are. You may not have any claim, the prat may be right! If the roof was sound then he was not negligent. It wasn't his fault either.

Sometimes that is what insurance is for - making bad neighbours marginally more bearable!

Do tell him to F off. He can lie on the roof with a roller on one of those long poles.

Pipbin Wed 19-Mar-14 13:12:27

If he wants to claim that the roof tiles are an act of god then he should prove that god exists.

There's not much point in asking him to pay the excess unless you're prepared to sue him for it. He's obviously not going to pay it voluntarily.

But you could suggest that he will be allowed access to your side of the drive only when he has paid up.

Yes to telling him to piss off re the garage.

No to going round there asking for help with excess, you know he'll say no, and take huge delight in it the knob

Reported Samantha does mummy know you're not at school?

KittyTwatknicker Wed 19-Mar-14 13:17:32

Get off here Samantha, we don't need another pathetic troll.

Bramshott Wed 19-Mar-14 13:17:38

He sounds like an arse.

Problem is, if you don't allow him access to re-point his garage, and you are separately arguing that his roof wasn't well-maintained, he may bring it up as in "well at the moment I'm trying to maintain my garage acceptably, but the OP won't allow me access to do so".

It's too late now as you've claimed it on your insurance already.

What should have happened is that he should have claimed it on his house insurance.

And no, I wouldn't let the twat use my drive to access his roof....

Yanbu op he sounds like a.nightmare x

There's nothing you can do about the roof/car issue, let insurance companies sort it out. I know our fence fell on neighbours car and both insurers said it was for his to pay, not ours, though thankfully there was a lot less damage in our case.

He sounds awful, but you need to separate out the two issues.

When he asks about coming on to your property for the re-pointing, just say a polite 'no, it's not convenient'. Don't scream and shout (although it sounds very justified), become an iceberg. Let the insurance battle it out and try not to get into confrontations with him, because he sounds like a prick and a bully and even though you are in the right, you will never come away from those kind of arguments feeling like anything has been achieved, and he probably wont ever stop being a bully and a prick.

If he comes onto your property, tell him to leave and if he wont then call the police?

Pootles2010 Wed 19-Mar-14 13:37:27

Oh no i agree he sounds a nasty twat, but you need to rise above it - he's obviously getting kicks out of your upset.

LisaMed Wed 19-Mar-14 13:37:28

OP - I suspect that someone called 'Samantha Baines' has upset the troll, so they are using the intro, 'samantha baines here' to get her into trouble. Hugs, you are having enough grief without having collateral damage.

I'd let them repoint the garage and after they've paid for everything get ivy growing up and trashing the mortar, but that's just me.

good luck!
