Hi I am currently renting a property and in the back garden

Resolved Question:

Hi
I am currently renting a property and in the back garden are two very large trees. The trees cut all the light out of the back of the property and tower over the conservatory, One of the trees is encroaching on the property next door and the other now has branches leaning on the shed roof. My question is - Is my Landlady responsible for maintaining the trees? (It states in my tenancy agreement that I am responsible for grass, edges, and shrubs.)

Many Thanks XXXXX

Hello,

The trees are the responsibility of your landlady and she would be liable if they cause any damage to your neighbours property, as the trees are the owners responsibility.

You could also contact your local council Tree Team as they could force your landlady to act before the trees cause damage.

Hope this helps
