Shared boundary fence

Hi John,

the existing fence needs replacing
the OP tells neighbour "I don't want half the new fence stood on my land"
they don't have to have any fence
neighbour has two choices - erect fence entirely on his own land or don't have a fence

does that make sense?

Kind regards, Mac

There are few choices when it comes to boundaries.

1) If shared, and you both agree the existing is shared,and you want something different place it on your own land as the centre of the posts or wall will by definition be the actual boundary.
2) As per 1 but you want no fence/wall then leave it
3) If shared and you both agree to change then agree on costs and share them
4) If yours then it is yours
5) Hedges without any other feature then presume a mid line as the boundary. Any fence to show ownership will clearly change this but you can cut back severely to any fence line. Grubbing out is not an option in general terms without agreement unless trunk ownership can be established.

Others are I think variants on these basic 5

Hi Rob,

There are few choices when it comes to boundaries...

do you not mean 'boundary features'?

Kind regards, Mac

Nit picking again Mac. We know what Rob means. Ever thought of becoming a barrister? ;)
edit: Though Rob's reasonable analysis does assume you both agree where the boundary is ...

If you both disagree about evrything then only the courts can enforce an answer but that does not mean the disputes end, simply that phase has ended.Winners and losers always create further disputes. My lawyer friends then look to the next 30k sset of fees and charges :D :D
