Trees/Boundary Wall

Postby sassysycamore » Wed Jul 09, 2014 1:48 pm

Hello I am new to this and wondered if you could help? we have an issue where our garden wall is being pushed over by the neighbouring trees…not only that they tower over 40ft in height not allowing any light to one side of the building….we have spoken to the neighbour about it and he's is refusing to accept "any" responsibility and has said we need to contact our insurance company……and he can't and won't assist further….

Do we have any legal rights and what should be our first step in trying to resolve this?

Thank you in advance…..

He is wrong

If its his trees damaging your wall he is 100% responsible

Most House Insurance does not cover garden walls or fences but they may be prepared to chase him for you

have you checked very carefully all insurances /credit cards/mortgages/union memberships for Legal Expenses Cover

He is only legally liable once he is aware of the problem and then only for future damage (nothing previous )if he fails to take action within a resonable time.
