    Who is responsible for repairing fence? 25th Feb 07 at 12:20 PM
    I hope someone can help me with this question. :confused:

    I moved into my house about 3 years ago and the previous owner had erected a rather ramshackle wooden garden fence on the left side - the neighbours did have a wire fence in place but they have since taken this down. Unfortunately in the heavy storms the fence blew down and I have had to do a temporary repair as I have a dog who keeps getting out. My question is whether I am now responsible for this fence or can I force my neighbours to secure the boundary?

    Thanks all

  • If you know you're bust you must declare it asap. So no firm ever says "yes we plan to go insolvent". So you never?

  • Some people misreading... it's NOT the rumours of insolvency of the Monarchy! Its Monarch airlines (again tho I've no idea of its validity)

  • Also re #monarchinsolvency rumours it's important to state Monarch are firmly denying it...
