Hello I am a solicitor with 20 years experience. I will try to answer this question.
Is the house back on the market? I think you are in a difficult position. Your neighbour might be responsible if the trees on his land actually caused harm. However, if it is only a theoretical risk of future damage then they will not be responsible for anything to you and you will not be able to compel them to carry out any tree work.
This sale sounds doomed it may be that a future buyer would not get tangled up in all this worry about trees. The less you know about the trees then the less you will need to disclose on the property information form
No, we had to take the house of the market as we were receiving no income from rent or otherwise and have to pay the mortgage. Do we not have a comeback at the Nationwide or tree surveyor as they have basically blighted the property for selling at this moment, having taken the word of a surveyor through the contents of his report based on supposition and conjecture. I have attached a copy of his report.
I can't really consider the whole document. If you have a remedy against anyone it is the surveyor you might have a claim against if he has been negligent or acted with a conflict of interest.
I am disappointed that I asked for a detailed answer whereby I would be given a legal position which I was in the first answer. In addition I expected some original thought from the forum that would enable me to decide what I may have to do now to re-ignite the sale on a firmer footing.
Also the whole survey document consists of about two actual pages of simple script which would not take a lot of understanding by any mere mortal.
