In late 2016 my dad and uncle started to construct our house (paternal property). The work was given to a contractor who happened to be a friend of an acquaintance. No formal agreements were made between us. The house is divided into 3 floors. In 2018 my uncle who happens to own the second floor, entered into a lease agreement with a party to finance the construction. We even finished the house warming ceremony in Jan 2018. After the 2nd floor was occupied by those folks, the building contractor has denied entry to us in the ground and first floor. He’s asking for more money and saying he will talk to his lawyer and take over our property. Since we were locked out we are not able to collect any posts etc. Everyone at home are advising us to break and enter. I would like to know if he can prevent us in doing so by issuing an Injunction or Stay order. Also is there any chance for us to find out if the same has been issued by the court against us. As we don’t have access to posts, we are worried that he might even have taken the summons (if any) and kept it.
In the event we break and enter and he calls the police what should we do to protect ourselves. My dad is a senior citizen so are my uncles. I'm really worried for their health and well being. We heard from others that , if the police get involved they will prevent us from entering our own house. is this possible ? Please advise.
