You are allowed to cut back, at your cost, any overhanging branches or encroaching roots to your boundary, provided that this does not damage the tree or make it unsafe.
You may ask the HA if they want any of the cut branches or roots, if they do not want them back, you would need to dispose them off at your own cost.
May I help further?
In that case, I would suggest that you get a solicitor to write a letter to the HA asking them to cut the tree or admit liability for all damage caused to your property by the tree.
A solicitor's letter sometimes is as effective as going to court. If the HA does not act on the letter, then you may go to court.
