We felt we couldn’t leave the house as we waited for confirmation it wouldn’t try to take our land for a third time
Last January we bought a semi-detached new-build. Last month the developer, Redrow, twice attempted to appropriate part of our front garden to widen the communal drive. It did this without any prior notice or explanation and only stopped when we threatened to call the police. We became prisoners in our own home as we awaited written confirmation that it wouldn’t make a third attempt. Redrow now adds insult to injury by suggesting its communication on the matter could have been “clearer”.
Not only does this imply that some prior communication was attempted, but that, as we are in our 70s, we are too senile to understand plain English. An apology would be enough. It’s their attempts to deny the undeniable that are so enraging.
