  1. I believe they did do that and they had a lawyer write to him but he's ignored it. So we are waiting for the new cracks but I don't have much faith in my insurer that they will pursue this with any more conviction
  2. Thanks for your reply Dan. Actually the height of the leylandii trees is about 7 metres. Yes the loss adjuster sent arborists round who looked at the foundation clay and found evidence from the leylandii trees. They sent the report to the neighbour who ignored it. We had the brickwork re pointed.
  3. Two years ago my neighbour's tree roots caused cracks in my house wall. I contacted my insurers who paid for the repairs but could not get the neighbours to remove the trees. Two trees are 5 meters tall and two metres from my property. Two years on to today I can see more cracks appearing but they will not remove the trees. My insurer says they cannot take the neighbour to court because the damage was unforseen What can I do now? Thank you
