Our tenants contacted the agent who looks after our house and said the wind has blown one of the fence pannels off.

We are in the process of getting another one but the tenant has been hassling us as they have a dog to keep in.


We don't normaly allow pets and certainly not dogs but they were a nice couple!!. I think next time we will stick to not pets/dogs and possibly include that the fences are there as a social nicety and not a right lol but not sure we could do that lol

...............really??

The fence is there to show where your land stops and the neighbour's land starts - lots of other ancillary uses but that is their prime function.

Considering we are told often on this site, that unless specificly stated you do not have to put a fence up if you don't want to, then yes a social nicety is how I would discribe it.

You could mark you boundry with a line of bricks in the soil.

'...............then yes a social nicety is how I would discribe it.'

..............then hold onto that thought when your lack of a 'social nicety' allows an adjoing landowner to erect a 'boundary feature' on your land.


'You could mark you boundry with a line of bricks in the soil.'

Yes, and I've done it many times in an open plan, front garden, type of scenario - in a rear garden?
