The retired police officer is facing financial ruin after she bought her dream home in Torquay at auction just a week before a landslide left it on a cliff edge.
Sue Diamond made a telephone bid of £154,500 for the house in February 2010, without viewing it.
But eight days after the auction, a landslide left the 1930s house just 50 yards from a drop into the sea, and signalled the start of a lengthy legal battle.
Since then, she has been engaged in a legal war with the builder who sold it to her, Matthew Taylor, who has been reduced to living in a caravan while the dispute has dragged on.

An inquest has found that the death of Tommy Hollis, who was killed by a collapsing lamppost, was an accident.Read the full story ›
Kate Hollis, the mother of baby Tommy Hollis, who died after a lamppost fell on him, said she felt let down by the inquest into his death. Yesterday, the inquest found that it was an accident. A workman gave evidence that he had cut through a metal plate several days before the lamppost fell.
The mother of baby Tommy Hollis, who died when a lamppost crushed him in his buggy, spoke outside the Inquest into his death. A Jury ruled his death was an accident.
“We came here knowing it would be an extremely challenging time for us. However, we did not expect our upset and anguish to be compounded by what we feel was the coroner's decision to exclude from consideration questions and evidence that might lead us to better understand how our son, Tommy, was killed in February 2010.
“We feel let down that crucial witnesses were not called or declined to answer questions. In particular, Kelvin Elmore, who cut the plate, chose not to give evidence and explain to the Court, in person, why he did what he did.
“Also, Hounslow Borough Council, under whose control these works were carried out, have been notably absent from these proceedings.
“We would also like know why there was no engineer on site at or around the time of the cut to the lamp post when it was apparent that the job was becoming more complicated; and how no one realised that the plate was connected to the lamp post despite it being so close.
“We know that nothing will bring back Tommy but we hope that by continuing to try to find the answers this court failed to find, nothing like it can ever happen again.”
