Dangerous tree on neighbour's property

Recommended Posts

If the property is in receivership, the property is owned by the receiver, albeit they will be trying to get rid off it for a profit , therefore as the owner is 'known', the LPA are very unlikely to deal with it under the local government (miscellaneous provisons) Act, as that would be spending local tax payers money on a privately owned 'asset' .

Notify the 'owner', if known , post letter of your concerns through the letter box and copy to LPA.

Check your own insurance that you are covered for 'tree damage'  and provide them with the details of the property they will then advise you on how to best proceed in regards protecting your asset.

Monitor the lean without trespassing, by photographs so you have some evidence (or not) of progressive movement.

Your concern re tree and foundations is different to 'tree falling risk'.
