Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
What is it you would like to know? Can he cut them back?
yes, he does not own the land, he hasn't even given me 24hrs from his first email, and l have ased him several time not to cut back my tree
By law anything overhanging his land can be cut back.
But he can't cut anything that would kill the tree
He also does NOT need your permission
But he also must offer back the cuttings
If he cuts back beyond the boundary line then this is criminal damage and can be reported to the Police
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
e does not own the land, does that make a difference, he has right of way thru to his property
I see. Only the owner can cut the trees
Otherwise it would be criminal damage
Does that help?
you mean the owner of the property as in the carpark
Yes that is right
Does that clarify?
