There are theoretical supposed-to-be's and reality. In reality no-one can force someone else to contribute to a fence repair/replacement etc.

If you want a repair/replacement you have the option of putting up your own. You can then control what is attached to it. The 'shared' fence would probably be best left in situ unless both parties agree about the way forward.

So it seems that if you have admitted that you want a new fence, and your neighbour has not admitted that he wants a new fence, then you are on "a hiding to nothing". Your neighbour has to do nothing, let you get on with the job at your expense. But can he stop you doing anything that he doesn't like, if he is not contributing?

All this is well and good but we still haven't seen the wording in the deeds that the boundary fencing is indeed a shared responsibility. And if so in what way. For example it could be a 'party fence' situation. Or there could be no mention of fencing at all just a boundary.

Gravey could you do that please? (the third time of asking ...)
