Get UK Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I will help you with your question.
You're entitled to cut back any branches and the trunk if they together overlap into your boundary/airspace.
It doesn't matter what is in the land registry about this, unless you consent to the tree/branches etc. coming into your property, then cannot. And you're entitled to take steps to have them removed.
I hope this answers your question. If you need further information, either now or later, just let me know and I'll gladly help out.
Please do remember to rate my answer as highly as you can for me. Thank you.
Thanks for your wonderful service, but just a quick supplementary...
Yes, of course.
Thanks for your wonderful service but just a quick supplementary. Can I return the removed items to the person who put them there or must I have the unwanted job of disposing of them ??
No, you can (and in fact, should) return the unwanted items to your neighbour. This avoids any suggestion of theft then. So, what you're just doing is abating the trespass.
Please do remember to rate my answer, and if you need more general information in the future, do just let me know, and I'd be more that happy to try and answer your questions.
