Hello. Can you confirm that the tree overhangs your land, or land in which you have a share of the ownership (ie the common road)?
If not, who owns the road please?
It is a common road owned by Ilchester estate, but all the local residents share the maintanenc costs of the common road and land

you have only asked more questions rather than replying to my queries
Is this all I get from you?
I have tried all the options as you have mentioned and have always maintained my genuine reasoning. Sadly, the tree owners do seem to be behaving and acting unreasonably
I will continue my efforts and see to it that Ilchester estate and the managing agents can bring this issue to a satisfactory conclusion without much hard feelings between the parties
Your suggestion of pruning without permission seems the only legitimate option if all else fails
The tree company are refusing to touch the tree without owner's permission
I have conveyed your arguments to the managing company but have not heard from them
will write again
One further twist in the saga: The owner, at one stage had agreed for the pruning but they wanted us to pay for both the big trees and for us to bear the entire cost. I had argued that I would pay for the cost only only for the tree which is causing nuisance
The owner phoned the tree company then refusing permission
Ironically, the managing company are the official appointed agents by Ilchester Estate and Abbotsbury Association to manage not only our estate but also Somerset Square (the owner's site)
I have, previously also written to the Director of Abbotsbury association
about this but have not had any response
Should I be now looking at contacting a legal attorney ? Naturally, I would hate to be drawn in to a long drawn out legal battle
Should I deal with the owner or the managing agents?
