Hello, I just want to settle an argument with my son who says the law has changed over the last couple of months, as I do not beleive him and cannot find anything on internet I thought I would come to you
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX not really answered my query, are you saying that there never has been a definition on who owns which fence. My property deeds clearly show that I own the left hand fence/wall, Please elucidate further, thanks
That wasn't the question but I amhappy to continue.
If your deeds say that you own thefence on one side and the neighbour owns the fence on the other side, that isthe situation at the time the deeds were drawn.
However there is no unwritten convention saying that which many people seem to think exists
You may since have removed the fenceand the neighbour may have replaced it so the situation could have changed.
However what is in the deeds (assumingthat the above is not the case) still applies
If you tell me the problem you are having I can tell you how to deal.
Does that answer the question? Can Iassist any further?
