    Fence on either side who own's which

    Is there a golden rule, if the deeds to not specify, who owns and maintains the right or left hand side of the fencing? It's a mid terrace house, I always under the impression that the right hand side of the property was your's to maintain. I tried to look on an aerial view and there's five houses in a row and counted the fences one of the end terraces would be liable to maintaining both fences which doesn't seem right.

    It may not seem right, but one end of a terrace will always have responsibility for the end fence or even both fences, unless the side fences erected to separate properties are shown to be party fences in a conveyance. Some of the older paper deeds did use an inward facing "T" to identify which fence was the responsibility of the land being conveyed.
    Without such evidence there is no definite legal presumption.
