Who owns the gate?

Post by Flitch Fancier » Sun Apr 28, 2019 10:57 pm

Probably a silly question but....

If I own the fence - no dispute. Do I automatically own the gate and posts - assuming that they are on the same alignment? My assumption is that I do, otherwise my neighbours gate and gate posts will be trespassing on my land.

Am I right to think that if the gate and gateposts are out of line with the fence [on the neighbour's side] then the gate and post will probably belong to them?

only if there is a clear need for there to be a gate in your fence - do you own a RoW over their land or vice versa?
