I’m a landlord that has a large apple tree within the back garden. It overhangs the public highway (end of a quiet cul-de-sac) which runs along the back of the property. As it has been that time of year that it usually deposits a large amount of apples on the footpath / road.
As I have been living just a round the corner a quite regularly walk the dog past here. Being neighborly I do tend to clear the fallen apples when passing, as if left they just go rotten causing a bit of a mess and safety issue.
However in the new year we will be moving, so l won’t be around to keep picking them up as they fall.
My question is am I actually liable to clear these apples up as they are outside of my property, and what if someone did step on one slipping injuring them self.
