So next door and I share the same gate post for our backgates but its totally rotten. I haven't been able to use my gate for about a six months had to screw it shut just for it to close. I have had a man out today to give me a price for a new post, gate and fitting it the cost is £220 but next doors gate will not be able to be fixed on as it only has 1 out of the 3 hinges left on it and the man said there gate is also rotten. Have tried to speak to them about it but they wont open the door to me even though i can see them. Can I just leave their gate in their garden for them to sort out dont really want to do this but if they wont speak to me and I dont have a number for there landlord what can I do.

Its shared so I would say we are both responsible for it. How would I find this out I know the fence between our gardens is theirs as I had to get a new one about 5 years ago

Well you can, if you want to be accused of criminal damage :lol:

OP, do you own your house and if so do you have a copy of the land registry plan/covenant? It should say on there who owns what and something along the lines of 'the boundary on the xxx side is the responsibility of xxx and must be kept in good order blah blah blah yada'.

If you have that then you are within your rights to contact the owner of said gatepost and demand they sort it. Then.... Fix your new gate to it :lol:

Thanks everyone for there advice hopefully It can be sorted quickly

usually you can tell from your house and garden where your boundary is, although double checking is good

If you are gonna do anything might be worth taking photos before you start to back you up in what you are saying. But if its their gatepost you could still have trouble
