Fence boundary deeds

I have read the deeds multiple times but it’s not clicking...I blame lack of sleep from a teething baby!

I understand I share a fence with my neighbour to the left but I am trying to work out who owns the north west fence at the back as we would like to replace it. Am I right in thinking it is ours?

I’m nowhere near an expert, but it reads like you own the north west fence - it says it belongs to the property ‘hereby conveyed’ which I think means the property the documents are talking about.

Looks like the fence on the north west forms part of your property (“premises hereby conveyed” = this property being transferred). I think.

It states it is a party wall so it could be shared.

You need the land registry document to be certain. Look at the T on the border, if it is only within the boundary of your property then you own it, if there is a mirroring T on the property of the adjoining property(will look like an H That has beencut in half) then it is shared

Unfortunately we have no ‘Ts’- that’s the first thing I checked for. The semi attached to us is the party wall/fence but we are a corner plot so our back garden backs on to a front garden, that’s the fence I’m querying. Reading the deeds again this morning after some sleep and a coffee, and I agree it is ours.

Thanks for the help!

Can I ask a question please?! If your deeds say there are no T marks does that mean you don’t own any fences?

Yes I would read that as you owning the north west fence.

If you still have the correspondence from your solicitor when you bought the house then it is likely that they will have told you about fence in slightly plainer English.

@Callipygion on the plans there are no ‘Ts’ marked which is why I looked the title deeds to see what it said. We know we are responsible for the fence to the right do not have neighbours that side even tho it isn’t marked.
