Apparently, there is a lot of confusion as to who owns which boundary/fence in properties that have shared boundaries/fences with other properties, e.g. terraced houses (including end of terraced houses), semi-detached, etc.
I have since discovered your title deeds attached plan may indicate which boundary/fence you own by means of a ‘T’ marked on each side of a boundary line. Apparently, if the ‘T’ is inside your boundary then you own the fence that runs along this boundary.
But I live in an end-of-terraced house numbered ‘136’ in the attached title deed plan which I have changed a few details for the purpose of this post in order not to out myself. It is quite obvious from the plan that I own and am responsible for the two boundaries/fences marked with the two green arrows.
Now, it would seem that I do not own the boundary/fence marked with a red arrow that runs along ‘Side Road’. So, here are my questions:
(1)Who owns this boundary/fence marked with the red arrow? (2)Assuming it’s the local council who own it, AIBU to ask them to contribute their share when I replace the entire fence around my property? (3)Are they likely to agree to contribute?
Would be most interested to hear from anyone who has had similar experience.
