Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear, it does not say on your deeds the hedge is owned by one side or another?Alex
Ok - then you are correct. It is jointly owned and no part of it can be removed (save for usual trimming) unless both owners agree and consent.It is jointly owned and if one party cuts or removes it, that technically is criminal damage.
It is an offence, criminal damage - but the Police may try and tell you its civil, it is not
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
You can insist - its criminal damage of property belonging to another.
If that does not work, write to the Chief Constable and make a complaint.
Can I clarify anything for you?Alex
Thanks and good luck! Alex
