Legal action through the Domestic Animals Act 1994 isn’t something to be entered into lightly and can be a lengthy process. Legal action is not automatic and will depend on assessment of each case.

You will have to give evidence and be a willing witness in court.

The completeness and accuracy of your sworn evidence, and that of your neighbours, is critical to help achieve a successful outcome in court.

You will be required to keep comprehensive diaries over a period of time as well as complete a detailed impact statement. The evidence you give may be subject to cross examination in court.

Please note: We will not get involved in any unrelated domestic/civil disputes between you and your neighbour.
