Large trees and tree risk to buildings
RGS can supply tree reports to satisfy conditional mortgage offers for home buyers.
Mortgage lenders tend to be anxious about lending on a property where trees are growing in close proximity, or where there is a history of structural movement; they will often require the independent advice of an arboriculturist before confirming the mortgage offer. Subsidence, due to the effects of nearby trees, generally only occurs on shrinkable soils e.g. clay.
