Customer Question

As I look out of my back door, can you please confirm what side I would be responsible for the good upkeep of the boundary fence for. My neighbour has a tree which has destroyed my fence on the left hand side, and it has now started to make my patio, which I had laid some 8 years ago, rise. He informs me, in no uncertain manner, he is not responsible for any damage caused by his tree!

Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further details first
I am not certain why the responsibility for the boundary is an issue given the fact that the tree has done the damage?
