Hi, our neighbours have...

Customer Question

Hi, our neighbours have a 12 metre tall by 70 metre long holly hedge. They just allow it to grow. After endless requests and a solicitor we paid £850 to have it cut. According to thier land registry details the hedge does belong to them and it is stated in the registry that they have a duty to maintain it. I have made them aware of this but just get ignored. How can I enforce the words written in the land registry? Why should I pay to keep thir hedge from damaging my property? Regards Chris

Thank you for your question and welcome.

My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you today.

Does the hedge cause a nuisance to your property? I.e does it encroach onto your land?

Kind regards
