House Beautiful Bed.

House Beautiful's Sarah Easton says:

Q My neighbour has a huge walnut and a dying horse chestnut with leaf mould and bleeding canker whose branches hang 20 feet into our garden, blocking out the light and dropping sackfuls of debris in autumn. Can we get rid of them? Do we have a legal right to sunlight? And who’ll pay if the branches fall and smash our fence?

It’s not easy to succeed in a claim for interference with a right to light. You have to show that the light enjoyed is less than it was before and that the reduction means your property can’t be used for its normal purposes. That said, your neighbour is responsible for her trees and any damage they may cause. Write and inform her of your concerns. If she does nothing and they do cause damage, the court could decide that she was negligent and hold her responsible. Legally you can cut back any parts of the tree that hang over your garden, but only up to your boundary. Anything you do cut off belongs to your neighbour and should be offered to her. First make sure the trees don’t have Tree Preservation Orders on them, and if you live in a Conservation Area, it’s illegal to chop, lop or fell them, so check with the local authority before you get out a saw!
