    Default Missing tree

    Just wondering if anyone has been in same situation?

    Basically, I live in a tree conservation area and one of the trees that was marked on the survey when I bought my house is no longer there...

    Now I'm coming to sell my house, will this get flagged up in any surveys? Will it matter?

    Cheers,

    James.

    Thanks to Mr.James

    Did you remove the tree... If so how many years ago.

    It all depends. I cannot see how a missing tree will hinder the sale of the property, but you might have to foot the bill for some indemnity insurance which will protect the buyer of any wrong doing.
    My friends wife is a conveyancing admin type so will ask her.

    Trees don't just go missing. if you haven't received any ransom note or anything I expect it's just wandered off in search of better scenery or soil conditions. Check your local park. (">

    Just think of the poor homeless birds and squirrels..

    Mr.James.. The friends wife came back with this. I do not think it is the best advice, but then again...

    They remove the tree? I would say nothing unless it comes up. They don't have to provide their survey which shows tree in any event so keeping quiet would be my advice.

    It vanished in 2011. Well I say vanished, I sprinkled some pixie dust on it and it magically turned into a shed. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    But I've had a look through all my survey stuff and can't find any sign of the tree. I thought it was on the survey but it's not... I've definitely seen it marked on something so I guess it must be on the property's deeds which are held with the mortgage people. I'm defo going to keep my mouth shut about it. Do the solicitors who handle the deeds check for stuff like that?

    They will do certain searches, again worst case they make you pay for an indemnity policy but these things are relatively cheap.

    Other than that, start looking on ebay! [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Shocking the damage those recent storms did. You really should have told the council when it blew over but sometimes things just slip your mind

    I was thinking about the whole 'act of God' thing but I'm pretty sure the Mrs Dad just cut it at ground level. If they wanted to mover the shed and check the stump they'll seen it's not uprooted or lightning damaged or anything.

    I've been Internet digging a bit this afternoon and I've found out that a tree conservation area only covers trees that have a 7.5cm diameter, 1.5m off the floor. There's another tree in my back garden that's about the same height and it's only 6cm wide so I guess I can just the missing one was also 6cm and therefore not covered.

    Was it actually highlighted by a search or are you still at the same place?

    Stump might be intact but thats only because after those hooligans down the road set fire to it you put the fire out before it spread too far and then being responsible you cut the rest back as it was a danger to the public and you didnt want the council to be responsible for any compensation claims...........

    Blown over (and snapped) in high winds. The excuses are endless. I wouldn't worry too much. When they come to 'survey', just play dumb and say you didn't realise it was an endangered species of tree!

    That won't work. When we had those bad storms (87/88?) we had a tree outside our house that ended up leaning at about a 40° angle over the road. If it fell it would probably kill or injure anyone in it's path, and it definitely would have caused a lot of damage to the house opposite, and probably squashed their car if it was on the drive when the tree fell.

    As we also were in a conservation area we contacted the council who told us we were not allowed to cut down the tree under any circumstance, and they would not indemnify us if we followed their order and the tree caused injury or damage.

    Luckily the pixies took care of that one for us as it just vanished one day
