So the MRS and I are building our dream retirement home. We have council approval to build, but know the neighbours to the left who already own a home there, and the neighbours to the right who just have an empty block, have decided to sue us to stop building.
So what I've learned so far is that;
A. They can't actually sue us, they can only sue the council for approving such a category 1 structure.
B. Because it's a cat 1 they don't actually have the right of appeal to the ERD court system, instead having to go
straight to supreme court.
C. Everyone thinks their case us unsubstantiated and frivolous.
So my question is, can anyone tell me what the next step is? I've already received letters from their counsel telling me to stop building, and I politely told them to get stuffed.
