    UK, house fence, who's responsible

    Does anyone know, if looking towards a house, which side of the fence the home owner is responsible for ?

    I've visited a couple of sites which mention this 'law' is just a myth that was concocted up a long time ago and people just believe it. I want to build a fence/wall but my neighbor advises that it's his wall.

    As I look at my house, the left side wall is on neighbour's property line (though the bricks are mashed up and falling onto our side, and so is his soil, as hish house is higher up than ours, we're on a hill). We are doing up the driveway and want to erect a wall. However he says "at some point in the future, he wants to do up his driveway too".

    The neighbour on the other side (as you lok at house, the guy on the right) has erected a wall (before we moved in). It's a double brick wall. One line of bricks is on our side, the other line of bricks is on his side. We're not bothered about this side (though feel free to comment if you like).

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Build a wall on your side of the property line covering/hiding his wall.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    i know. i had to deal with this issue recently for fence maintenance. There is no universal law. it depends on the deeds which will state what is yours and what is someone else's. check your deeds. left fence is so bad but as it is not mine the neighbour should replace it.
