I believe its the left, not 100% on this though
#2
It varies, not always one side or the other.
You'll need to check the deeds to be sure.
#3
yes its the left, in general
#4
its council property,theyre telling me if im concerned with the fence its down to me,but it wasnt broken til they moved in next door and now its falling down,ive done my best to stack boards and bricks against it to stop the dogs coming thru but they just push it all down :(
#5
just tell them their dog broke the fence and they will have to pay

just tell them their dog broke the fence and they will have to pay
theyre moving out at the weekend,its a half way house so noone is ever in their long (and i doubt anyone would want to repair or replace fence because of this) but i dont want to be paying out for a fence if it isnt mine

My brother is in a housing association place, and he has had to replace his left fence too.

It's a pain and a cost, but your privacy and safety are worth it

yes very true but its so annoying that their dogs broke it and i have to fork out to repair or replace it
as theyre moving at the weekend i dont think they are too bothered about it

I know what you mean. But you don't know who is coming to live next door over the next few years. It might well be a lovely family who will make great neighbours.

If the new fence is put up well it should last you many years.

In my property, the left is the next door neighbours, (had to check deeds to confirm) The fench is their responsibility, the wall on the right (semi detached) is my responsibility.

Hope you get it all sorted amicably.
#14
If you live at the end of the street (at the top), who owns the right fence / wall / hedge? :O
#15
I always thought it was to do with the fence posts, the owner of the fence has to have the posts on their side?

Didn't know there was a rule that one side was yours.

Or it could be the neighbours from hell. Get the fence sorted now! Even chicken wire tacked over the hole would do.

Simple....WHEN are the COUNCIL ever right.....CHECK YOUR DEEDS

Yeah I know - I'd mentioned earlier to get them replaced for safety and privacy purposes... then I thought I'd mention that it might not turn out bad too!

You're not supposed to, but we nailed in nails to the top of the fence at our old house, leaving them sticking out a bit. Made it uncomfortable for anyone trying to climb over the back fence.

That is simply wrong. There is no set layout - it depends on the deeds.

There's the answer then - neither side as it's the council's fence.:thumbsup:
