    We have reserved a new house and there is a git massive tree in a neighbouring garden at the rear that belongs to an older housing estate.

    anyway we have reserved an end terrace that's attached to the middle house and another end terrace anyway this tree have one massive branch that grows over the middle garden with branches and leaves that overshadow all three gardens.....in fact one of the branches is hitting off the other end houses roof..

    these are 3 story hooses btw.

    we have told barrats our concerns they are also aware of the issue as other prospective buyers have mentioned this fucking tree.

    It is now with their legal team, we know there is no preservation order on the tree as we have checked..

    whats the chances of barrats getting the nuisance branch chopped off the tree?

    I know this might sound madness in this day and age, but how about giving them a knock and politely explaining your concerns? They might just be reasonable people.

    my mrs did this..they were not in..we have since found out from barrats that she has been abit of a nightmare..and is basically abit pissed off that she probably had a lovely woodland view before barratts brought the land and decided to build a new housing estate behind her house.

    the tree is HUGE and it would literally take out 3 houses if it were to blow over

    You have the right to cut back any branches that are within the boundary of your property.

    You'll just have to burn it down then I'm afraid.

    Wouldn't it be better for the environment to set the neighbours house on fire instead, thus making room for the tree to be relocated onto the ashes of the house. Win win (disclaimer gazc24 accepts no legal responsibility if you do this, do not do this.)

    Surely this’ll be the least of your worries when you’re out there fighting the taliban?

    Report it to the police. You need to speak to Special Branch.

    I gather that copper nitrate powder works;)
    Apparently if you drill holes in the roots on your property
    fill with powder and cap off with say bluetac and recover the roots.
    Works on Lalandia trees

    In theory

    Ring bark it.

    And ignore anything Barratts say. All they want is your money.

    Referring it to legal is their way of stalling you. They will do fuck all.

    Barratts won't give a shite, once you've signed the paperwork and they have your cash.

    Just cut down any branches that are in your boundary and hoy them ower the old dears fence.

    How can you have an end-terrace house that’s attached to two other houses?
