Moving home is more stressful than getting married, but I'd rather move home than get married again, (my M-i-L is dead, I don't want another one). :P :lol:

English law is slightly different. I could've made him pay if I'd inspected the property the same day he handed keys over and noted it then. However I couldn't inspect till the weekend after as he completed on a Monday and I was working. He obviously knew this and exploited the loophole to save him time

I live in the US, but I'm from the UK, and I am not a lawyer (solicitor), but I would be very surprised if what you say is correct. The buyer presents a property to you, and based on your viewing of that property and the reports that you get you make an offer on that property. You should get a clear agreement on stuff that may or may not come with the property, especially anything that could be considered "built-in" to the home, but also possibly plants in the garden, stone seating outside,etc. But it is not acceptable for the previous owner to do something that significantly degrades the value of what you are buying after you have agreed a price. That is true of any purchase, whether it is a house, a car, or just a pallet of bricks. You agreed to buy a certain thing, for an agreed price, and what you got was not what you agreed, because the previous owner trashed the lawn (and probably left you with disposal costs). If I were you I would nicely (as possible) explain the problem, and ask for compensation. If the previous owner says no (very probable), then visit this website: https://www.gov.uk/make-court-claim-for-money

Thanks. I checked it out but with the disposal fee being less than 300 and the fact that the garden was already in need of lots of work(I knew this) it's not worth the effort of dragging him to court. Especially as it takes time and he is retiring to Thailand in a months time

Normally I would say that it's worth a little effort to pursue several hundred quid. If he's off to Thailand though, I agree it would be a waste of your time. There's no way you could get any money before he's out of reach.
