mortgage tree reports for homebuyers or home owners

Why do I need a mortgage tree report?

When a tree or trees are close to a property, it is increasingly common for mortgage lenders to ask homebuyers for a specialist tree report.  They are sometimes referred to as mortgage tree reports, arboricultural reports or surveys, or homebuyer tree reports.  However, they all refer to the same thing.

There are a number of ways in which trees can pose a risk to property, including:

  • Subsidence caused by roots. As a result of this, damage can occur to the exterior or interior of a building.
  • Damage to roofs caused by overhanging canopies and branches.
  • Cracks in and uprooting of driveways, pathways and other exterior areas.

A tree report is an important way of addressing these concerns because it provides lenders with a professional assessment of the extent of these risks and what can be done to mitigate them.

What do our mortgage tree reports include?

As standard, our mortgage tree reports include:

  • An assessment of the risk of indirect damage (subsidence) caused by of all trees within influencing distance of the buildings or structures.
  • How likely it is that the trees will cause subsidence to adjacent properties.
  • The risk of direct damage (by contact) to built structures.
  • The health, condition and safety of the trees within influencing distance of the site.
  • Recommendations on the immediate and future management of the trees at the property.
