1. Dear Martin, Yes, you can divide your shared driveway and create a boundary fence along the boundary line between the two properties. This boundary line should run where the red line on the Folio maps is drawn on your title deeds. Just because there has been no physical boundary present between the two houses up until now, does not prevent you, now, erecting a boundary fence.

2. Be aware that in point of principle the boundary fence can be erected along the midpoint line of the boundary. However, in such a case, there would have to be some agreement on the fence with your neighbour. If you erect the fence on your side of the boundary, then in law, it is your fence and you can do what you like with it. As this is your plan, you will not need the consent of your neighbour to do this.
