Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear they have not just cut up to the boundary but beyond it?
Ok - then this is criminal damage and you can report this to the Police.
In terms of the overhanging parts on their land - they dont need your permission for that.
They own the airspace above their boundary line and if the tree overhangs they can cut it to the boundary without your permission
They should, oddly offer you back the cuttings
But if they have cut back past the boundary then this is criminal damage and you can report this to the Police.
The Police can prosecute them for criminal damage and if guilty can get a criminal record.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
If I did pursue the criminal damage option, and my neighbour is at fault (and her father who did it, who does not live there) what are my options, and what is the likely outcome. I know there are not many specifics, but what would be the generic outcome.
If this answers your question could I invite you rate my answer before you leave today.
