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.
