Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am a solicitor.
I would advise you to report this to the council and also get a local tree surgeon to come and see if the roots of the tree may be cut back to the boundary line to stop them damaging your friend's property.
May I help further?
You are welcome Marianne.
The environmental health division of the council may be able to help.
Legally, the roots may be cut back to the boundary line as long as it doesn't make the tree topple or damage it.
All the best
