Private Covenants on Trees

Some trees on private property are subject to restrictive covenants preventing their removal.  The Council does not hold property ownership records or any information on restrictive covenants.  The Council does not have the power to enforce restrictive covenants.

If your property is registered land, restrictive covenants will appear in The Charges Register (Section C) of the Official Copies of the Title Register. This document is available from The Land Registry.  If your property is currently unregistered, these covenants would be detailed in your Property Deeds. 

If you do not have access to your property deeds (e.g. if your property is still subject to a mortgage), you will need to contact your solicitor or mortgage lender to request copies.
