You couldn’t make this up. The neighbour to one of my houses I’ve owned 22 years asked Nottingham Council to maintain their trees close to his house. Nottingham Council said Not our trees, they’re that Landlord Mr Roberts. I of course said Not mine, they’re the Council’s.
Nottm Council went to Notts Council, and they couldn’t decide amongst themselves and their army of Legal experts and solicitors who owned it-Obviously can’t read Legal documents, so the Council wrote back to the Neighbour and said Not ours, and to take Legal action against me.
And they can’t come out to look because they are on Mick Roberts land.
I had to contact my solicitor, pay their not cheap fees as you know, and my solicitor found the answer in 30 minutes.
Now here’s the biggie, after me now proving I don’t own and the Council do, the Council now WON’T pay my solicitors fees. Even though I have emails from them acknowledging their mistake, they’re now refusing to pay and say I’m to contact their insurers.
These are the same people that operate Licensing that tell us how to rent houses out. And what the tenants can and can’t do.
Nottingham Council seems toxic through and through. From top to bottom. NEVER listen to us on the ground. I’ve housed that many of Nottingham Council homeless over the years and NOT ONCE has the Council come to ask me how me and the tenants I’ve helped them out with, how we’d be affected.
If they’d have rung me on the first instance on this tree case, voilà. But Oh no, no communication from the Council & they are driving me insane.
Update 22 June 2021
I’d put in an official complaint for Council to pay my legal fees due to their inadequacies, they’ve obviously not read the letter properly, passed it to Tree services who have replied-Not our land.
Gees, these people!
