I am currently carrying out renovations to our property and took on a contractor who in turn subcontracted scaffold to a scaffolder. As the scaffolder was dismantling the scaffold, he accidentally dropped a pole on the neighbour’s roof. The roof being 100 years old, the tiles were brittle and some broke.
The Neighbour wants me to compensate him. However, I believe it is the legal duty of the scaffolder who committed the negligence or error.
The scaffolder agreed to come along with a mate who is a roofer to replace roof tiles, but the neighbour insists on a qualified roofer with trade qualifications and insurance, and pressing for a whole new roof unless exact matching tiles are put on, which is impossible because 100-year-old tiles fade in colour, and anyway manufacturers from time to time bring out slightly different colours.
Can anyone offer any advice, please?
