On the 7th March, the Radfords advocate replied, confirming that the complaint had been lodged and that their rights had been reserved. The same letter also indicated that Aristo were initiating the transfer of title deeds for the villa.
In July another resident, Mr Murray, received a reply from Aristo regarding his complaint about the same retaining wall. Paragraph 7 of this reply reads
In respect of the retaining wall, as Mr Aristodemou said to you during his visit at Chloraca Sunset, the wall is constructed correctly and there is no reason to worry about It
A clear denial of any problem with no acceptance of any responsibility.
During 1992, the retaining wall suffered its second partial collapse.
As time passed without further action or repairs, Aristo Developers tried to transfer the title deeds for the villa to Mrs Radford. A letter from their Advocate dated 1st July clearly identifies the position the Radfords were in.
