Hello all, most of you probably won’t know what I’m on about but for those of you that do, I feel that I owe you an explanation. A friend alerted me to a few threads where I’d been called a troll etc.

I’ve been through a very long process with NDN about the doors (which I had been told were going to be replaced/ wall reinstated etc)

I had also been told by my lawyer that all was fine.

The planning dept have been on my side, as per all previous threads.

This all seemed to be going ahead until I returned home to find half of my flat wall caved in.

I had to move out to stay with a friend. The whole thing has been a total nightmare and it is still not resolved. My wall has been partially fixed, the patio doors remain and no one has seen hide nor hair of NDN or the builders for months.

My flat is now uninhabitable for the foreseeable and there are legal implications, planning laws and listed building laws which all have to be agreed and adhered to before anything will be done, apparently.

This may be terribly outing but I am beyond caring. I was told not to post on here, however, the advice I received was second to none and so I thank you all for that.

My grandma has been unwell so I have been back and forth to Spain, seems like all is against me!

Sorry I disappeared for so long, but you can imagine how awful it has been, I’m in a better place now, so thought it was time to come back and let you know that I’m not some fantasist making up stories about doors 😂

Hope to see some familiar names on the thread!

Oh no! That is awful. Thabks for coming back to tell us. I had been wondering.

Watt! Gosh so sorry it's gone that way. Really hope it gets resolved soon and that span Gran is on the mend xx

Thanks for the update Watty - sorry it's all so shit for you. Love to SpanGran, hope she's on the mend

ScreamitDreamit Fri 27-Oct-17 21:35:58

although the situation you're in is beyond shit, i really enjoyed all your threads, the way you tell things is so funny smile

so sorry things aren't going well. Do you think things will be okay in the end?

I've been a lurker and wondered what happened. good luck and hope it works out ok and you get back into your flat soon

silkpyjamasallday Fri 27-Oct-17 21:36:12

I lurked on your previous threads, I cannot believe they have destroyed another wall and left you unable to live in your home! Do you think it was some form of revenge? Sorry to hear about your granny too OP, I hope she recovers soon.

Sugarcoma Fri 27-Oct-17 21:36:31

I remember the original thread. Why did half your flat cave in!? Was it their builders doing more work or was it because they had already made the wall unstable with their previous work?

Sorry to hear it's been such a nightmare - I'm absolutely aghast they seem to be getting away with this though!?

Can you sue them directly in a civil court? That way you could probably get your solicitor costs covered too (if you win).

I've been wondering for months whether your situation ever got resolved, sorry to hear that it's gotten worse. sad

PurplePillowCase Fri 27-Oct-17 21:41:49

oh wow.
I love an update, but was hoping that all is resolved now. sad
you deserve an award for stamina, suffering and the best thread series and hopefully you can laugh about it all in a couple of month’s time.

all the best to spangran who hopefully gets better soon!

I was thinking about you only yesterday!

I hope Abuela is ok and you get the flat sorted soon.

Veronicat Fri 27-Oct-17 21:45:38

Blimey! You have been through it! Hope things get settled quickly. flowerswine

kali110 Fri 27-Oct-17 21:46:20

Omg! I read all your posts. You cant live in your flat??

notapizzaeater Fri 27-Oct-17 21:46:33

Wow, so it’s actually got much worse 😥

Hope something goes right soon for you

WhatIsThisWatt Fri 27-Oct-17 21:46:38

sugar I Still don’t know! There was talk about a supporting wall (which it wasnt) and then “they might have removed too much from my side”

I still don’t know! I’m so angry, however, my family has to come first so I’ve put this on the back burner so to speak.

Not anymore.

DonttouchthatLarry Fri 27-Oct-17 21:46:45

Not a good update - hope you get it all sorted and are back home soon, and that SpanGran makes a good recovery (sorry for all your troubles but the whole thing was one of my favourite things on here ever!).

GreggsSausageRolls Fri 27-Oct-17 21:47:00

Hope things improve for you OP. Also followed your original threads.

KittyVonCatsington Fri 27-Oct-17 21:47:07

Oh no! Your wall? Those bloody arses neighbours/builders destroyed your home as well!? That's criminal and they should be brought to justice. Hope they are!
Well done for coping so well.

ItsNachoCheese Fri 27-Oct-17 21:47:11

Bloody hell :O

perhapstomorrow Fri 27-Oct-17 21:47:15

Oh whatis - How awful for you. I have often wandered what happened to you since your first threads. I have no advice but I had no doubts your story wasn't true.

I hope things get resolved and that you are back in your home soon. It's terrible that your CFN's and builder has done a runner!

Veronicat Fri 27-Oct-17 21:47:50

Let's hope @SchadenfreudePersonified can get Vlad on the case!

MrsMozart Fri 27-Oct-17 21:48:02

Yikes! How the heck did they cave in your wall?

Hope you're okay lass.
