Hi Alex.
I live in a Victorian terraced house with a wall on one side of the garden and a fence on the other, I need to know which I am responsible to maintain.
Thank you.
Does it say anything on your deeds?

Terrible confession, I don't know where they are. Is there not a definitive answer such as " the wall, or whatever, on the right, for instance, is the property owners responsibility"?
Then unless it says it in your deeds otherwise then it is a joint fence.Does that clarify? Alex
