Bracknell solicitor discovers Trees Preservation Order

In June 2010, residential Solicitor in Bracknell, Joanne Yamat assisted on the transfer of a property in Wykery Copse on behalf of Mr and Mrs O.  

Bloor Homes branch in Bracknell helped with the sale price, which was agreed to at £256, 000.  

The property located in the local authority of Bracknell Forest Council, had an order to preserve trees attached to it.  It was important for the Conveyancing Team in Bracknell to fully examine, which trees and the location of them on the property, to ensure that the clients were happy to proceed with the transaction.  

A Tree Preservation Order (TPO) is an order which prohibits the cutting down, uprooting, topping, lopping, wilful damage or wilful destruction of the tree without the consent of the local planning authorities.  Failure to abide by this order can result in a £20, 000 fine.

TPOs were introduced to enable local planning authorities to protect important trees in the area.  

The seller's Solicitor was Blake Lapthorn who assisted with the transfer.  The matter was completed by the end of the month.
