I have some tall trees in my back garden. A neighbour who lives

Resolved Question:

I have some tall trees in my back garden. A neighbour who lives two streets away has told me that they block sun light from reaching his property. His house is appromimately 150/175ft from the trees. Do I have an obligation to do something about them?
Thank you.

Hello,

No, legally you have no obligation to do anything about them unless the neighbour gets an easement from the court allowing him the right to light in which case you need to do something.

Of course there is nothing stopping you from agreeing to cut back your trees if he agrees to pay for it.
