Would need to check the deeds and not easy at the moment.We had lots of covenants and believe we all have to maintain our legal boundary.
To keep in good and substantial repair and condition of walls, fences or hedges on tge sides of the land marked "T" within the boundary of the land hereby transferred on the said plan.
We didnt explain it was a one off as we didnt honestly expect to have to pay to have work done on it in the future as it is their legal "T"boundary as per the quote from the deeds and info from the boundary plan.It was more of a good will gesture as the original fence was too low and lacked privacy.Hence their comment that they could see why we had done it .
Do you think asking a solicitor to write to them formally to request that they maintain their legal boundary would send a clear message ?
Thankyou Tony.I will instruct the solicitors to send them a letter then which will help to make our position clear.Every time the fence has needed attention we have never tried to repair it as it is their boundary fence.
