Don’t panic!

Many warnings go too far

Even if you are on the wrong side of the law, you don’t have to sell up ‘house and home’. Normally, a negative covenant with a reasonable penalty clause “without acknowledging liability” is sufficient. A promise to pay is not necessary.

Legitimate and frivolous warnings

Warnings can be totally justifiable and may help to provide an inexpensive solution to a dispute without recourse to the courts. I should be able to tell you whether you are liable for an alleged breach or not. If you are liable, we can de-escalate the situation. If it is clear to me that the warning is excessive or frivolous, we can put together an appropriate defence.

How to proceed

Just send me the paperwork you have received with a description of what has happened so far from your perspective; this will be treated in confidence.

I will look through everything and we will decide together what is to be done. Then, I will do the rest for you.

What does it cost?

Normally, for dealing with a warning, there is a one-off charge of € 357 (inc. VAT).

For anything other than this, we would come to a mutual agreement regarding the fee.
