I have recently taken over management of the freehold and common areas and structure of a development of six flats. I am the sole director of the management company.
Overhanging the land there are very substantial branches. If one broke, then it could seriously damage one of the flats. I am aware of the right to cut off branches and then the obligation to put them on the other owners side of the fence.
However, these are so large they will need employment of a specialist tree pruner, at substantial expense. I have given the adjoining owner the chance to cut the trees back. If he doesn’t what does anybody think I can do to make him liable for doing the work or paying for it?
A retaining wall is starting to crack near an encroaching tree. As I understand it, if damage is caused by his tree roots he will be liable. How has anyone else dealt with such a problem?
