Hello. I am a lawyer with over 15 years experience and will try to help you with this.
I am not sure that wording is necessarily very helpful or that it refers to fencing. The usual position is that each neighbour will be responsible for the upkeep of one of the side fences in the garden. It should have been made clear by your solicitor at the time of purchase and which fence was your responsibility, or if a joint repair situation existed. It is very likely to be the same fence in every grden on the street. Are you ablke to check your old conveyancing letters to verify what the position is?
You did not answer my specific question.
Were you quoting American Law?
I was wanting to know if the uk land registry LT172945 UK Law would support would support a UK court action in a small claims court.
I was not using US law I was referring to English & Welsh law. The short answer to your question is that the phrase you refer to does not help you. The position with duty to maintain fences will have been dealt with in enquiries between solicitors during the purchase and in the property information form. This is where you should look for your answer.
