What fences are you responsible for?

9th February 2020

Since the season of storm Dennis has been brought upon us, the question can arise about who's responsible for replacing or fixing damaged fences? Which side belongs to who? If you are having issues deciding or wish to determine the ins and outs of this sometimes delicate situation, then The land registry can look at this issue more formerly.


''In summary, there is no legal presumption that a person owns or must maintain a fence or other boundary barrier on the left or on the right. Ownership of the boundary is normally determined by the builder who erects the buildings. Modern buildings will usually have a detailed Transfer Deed that specifies ownership of the boundary fences. More often than not, however, it will be necessary to look at the ownership documents each side of the boundary, and sometimes even for the houses at the two ends of the street. These documents would include the Title Register, Title Plan, Conveyancing Deeds, Deed Plans, and, if Leasehold, the Lease and Lease Plan for each of the properties adjoining the boundary. These documents are all included in a Boundary Search.'' - Land Registry Quote.
