Having taken over from my lawyer who had sent letters via the bailiff a long time ago to my neighbor re damages for sewage seepage, etc etc, the above was employed by [Edit], and they eventually replied to me with a letter full of libel. With no further replies to my letters to them I handed in a letter to them on 21.07.2014 requesting payment and a reply, and saying that I had also been told that serious slanderous comments had been made against me by their client. I told them that I would be reporting them to the Cyprus Bar if I didn't have a reply within 7 days. I said this in order to provoke a reply! Their reply viz: (never any ref. no.)
Dear Mrs .............
RE: Your letter 21/07/2014
We have received your letter dated 21/07/2014, the contents of which we reject in their entirety.
Furthermore, we hereby ask you to stop every communication with us. If you fail to do so we will report you to the police.
Yours faithfully (should have been sincerely!)
Lawyers -Legal Consultants
I consider their above threat to be an attempt at frightening me, and this action would be wasting Police time. They appear to be very amateurish to me for various reasons, and do not appear to have seen any evidence of the damage to my property etc.
Has anyone else come across these Lawyers-Legal Consultants? I will appreciate any advice on what to do next.
I put up with 5 dogs barking every morning at 6.00am, and their excrement left for days on end, etc. but this is another matter.
Thanks Lynsab. I was using a very good lawyer in Nicosia, but of course, their costs were mounting, and I have other things going on since the untimely death of my husband. Hence, coming from a professional background I decided to deal with matters myself.
[Edit] fortunately vacated her property almost overnight, but is still living locally, so the problem with the dogs is no longer there. The Council is sorting out illegal railings etc, but it is for me to get the increasing damages from her. Her daughter co-owns the property on paper, and I do know where she works.
This woman has been reported to the Police many times by others, and seems incapable of dealing with anything in an amicable manner, and seems to have a problem with the truth! Libeling a local developer was probably not a good idea!
As for the 'Lawyers' they are, in my opinion, totally incapable of acting with the usual professionalism that one would expect, and their office bears out my impression. My late husband, who was only 63 when he died [Edit] was a Royal Military Policeman, so threatening me with the Police, and wasting their precious time, is a no brainer. Sometimes I suffer fools gladly; sometimes I don't suffer them at all.
Owing to recent events, the above's letter to me, together with further correspondence, and my lawyer's letter to the 'lady' who owes me money from allowing her sewage to wreck my concrete shed, over a long period of time, etc etc is now with the Police, saving them the bother of reporting me for my audacity in expecting an answer from them in view of their client's various actions. Copies of correspondence will be going to the Bar Assn. 'This is Cyprus innit' -(the 'lady' is, however British!) so it'll be interesting to see what they do.
I'm trying to stick to the family 'Vineit Pericula Virtus' -Virtue conquers Peril!
Thank you for that information.
In view of Tassos' threat to me, and apparently taking instructions from his client that libeled me (and a developer!) without apparently seeing any evidence of my neighbour's 'activities', when my lawyer had seen photographs, plumber's report etc. I have reported him to the Cyprus Bar Association, so will see what happens. Sometimes unfortunately these measures have to be taken, especially as his client is slandering me on a large scale, whilst owing me money for allowing her sewage to wreck my concrete shed for weeks!
Oh for a quiet life.
