Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Who owns the fence at the moment? Does it say in your deeds?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is no indication in the deeds regarding who owns the fence.

AS the house is viewed from road, which side of the house is it, left or right?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Right
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Ok, then this probably belongs to your neighbour.
Will he refuse to let you renew it?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Actually he has just agreed so problem solved.
Thank you.
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
Great. I am glad.
If he did not you could have only renewed it on your side of the boundary line. If this was the left fence, traditionally you have responsibility for that - hence the questions.
Can I clarify anything else for you about this today please?
