You and the Law – 25th October 2011

I had a very bad fall two years ago and was taken to hospital with concussion, a fractured cheek bone and knee damage. The grating and hole in the pavement where I fell was subsequently blocked over, but the council states this was done before, rather than after, I fell and as a result rejected my claim. I still get severe pain and headaches.

When my husband got divorced in 1995 he made a will leaving everything to his two sons. I have been married to him for 18 months after living with him for three years. If anything was to happen to him would his sons claim the house, since my husband hasn’t made a new will?

Our neighbour’s old conservatory used to overhang slightly on to our property. But the new one is worse: because of the slope the sill and guttering jut into our drive at head height. We told the neighbour and the builder not to do this, but they went ahead anyway. Can we do anything that doesn’t involve expensive legal action?
