Could you explain the situation a little more please?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The local council as requested all wooden sheds are to be replaced by metal sheds. Wooden sheds are a fire hazard. Nearer to my home is a wooden fence being the boundary of the site and MOD land which is overgrown brambles and pushing the fence over towards my home. I have asked the site owner to help several times. Is the fence not a fire hazard? The MOD will clear the ground every 7 years so not at the moment. I am a pensioner and the site owner said I should get my family to clear it! I am not keen to pay for a shed when I pay £149 month for ground rent.

What does your rental agreement say on the shed point or on the landlord being able to impose reasonable rules as he thinks fit ?

is your question about the shed or the fence/brambles?

do you own the fence?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The site rules are each resident shall have one shed of standard pattern supplied by the owner at current prices. This tells me the site owner should pay. I have mentioned the fence and would like to know who is responsible to maintain it.

Expert:  James Mather replied 4 years ago.
not necessarily from where I am sitting.
When it refers to Owner, does it mean owner of the site or does it mean owner of the mobile home?
If in the agreement, owner has a capital letter, and it should be defined somewhere as to what Owner means.

I did ask you who owned the fence.
