You may request a phone call through the site for an additional small fee. This is an automatic offer made by the system giving you the opportunity to pay extra to discuss things over the phone. However, it is entirely optional and if you just ignore it and close it down you will not be charged extra and we will just continue in writing at no extra cost.

If there are overhanging trees and branches from your neighbour’s property you can cut them back to the boundary point between you and your neighbour's land. Please remember that the branches do still belong to the neighbouring property however if the property appears neglected, you are unlikely to have any issues.
