That are attaching fence posts with bolts and metal plates to holes that go through the centre line of concrete posts that form the boundary between our properties. The actual boundary is on this centre line of the posts

The metal plates which are about two inches wide when fixed in place do in fact go across the centre line so are in part on my side of the boundary, I know this is only a minor infringement but I just want to know the legal position as to attaching additional weight etc to a shared fence line and posts
