Hiya
Obviously I don't know what you have written but just in case it helps at all, I believe that, as a 'rule of thumb' if you stand at your front door and look out, all fences on your right are your responsibility. However many neighbours 'share expenses' and I don't know about fences at the back of the garden if there are abutting properties. House deeds may show more.

The law is really complicated, all is not always as it seems, especially on older properties. According to my deeds, I own a rectangle shaped garden. According to my neighbour's deeds, I also own a strip of land behind his garden! Both properties once belonged to the house next door but one from me, so those deeds are next on my "hit list"! I have some large oaks at the bottom of the garden leaning towards a brick built shed, so this is a very active topic in my house at the moment. Henrietta, why not treat yourself to a trip down to Weymouth when the weather is nice, and call in at the Land Registry? The girl I met was really helpful when I did this. Their online forms are as clear as mud!

Hi thanks for replies- I did post a long waffle but decided it was too obviously me and might get read by my neighbour as she has an elderly gentleman living with them so may have come across this website.
My dispute was not regarding ownership as I know it is my fence and made it clear to neighbours it is my fence but , if anyone kindly pms me I will regale my tale, if not sorry to waste your time :D
