Debra, Expert

Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Debra, Expert

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

Are you saying that the agreement was that you would pay $360 each?

Customer
Hi
Customer
No this is straight foorward

Debra, Expert

If you are referring to the call offer I don't take calls anyway.

I suggest you tell them you had an agreement. You went by far further than you had to to help them with their sides that were in no way part of your responsiblity.

Then you can say that you expect them to adhere to the terms of the agreement just as you are and if they aren't happy you are very content to have a court decide.

Does that make sense?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.

Customer
He is now saying he didn't say we would split the fence. This is all been verble.

Debra, Expert

It doesn't make sense that he's taking a position because he is the one that said he wanted to take the fence down and asked you to share in the cost. Why would you be paying all of the cost yourself?

Customer
He charged my other neighbour $750.00 but they have already paid.What is their recource
img

Debra, Expert

They would have to sue him if the overpaid him.

img

Debra, Expert

Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?

Customer
No thank you

Debra, Expert
