Cease and Desist Letter

Post by BelindaB » Thu Dec 28, 2017 4:12 pm

I'm getting ready for the spring, when my neighbour will most certainly start chopping back my shrubs/trees way over the boundary line as they have done this year. They have been shaping them like topiary over the boundary line. I tell them to leave things alone, but they can't seem to help themselves.

I've been looking for a template for a cease and desist letter. I assume I can send one myself, and don't have to pay a solicitor? The ones I can find seem to be about harassment ...
I want to tell them they must not cut back further than the boundary. Is that all I need to say (with the inclusion of 'cease and desist'), or should there be more legal jargon?

Hi BelindaB,

why must they not cut back further than the boundary? there’s no point sending a letter if it doesn’t say...

kind regards, Mac
