Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

I have moved out of my First time home in Nottingham and into my partners place. Unfortunately, it is smaller than my previous property, so I had decided to erect a 6ft fence along the width of my pretty big Garden to split the garden in two. I then had built a storage shed on the other side of the Fence that has a separate access from the street, but not accessible from the house.
I have done this as I needed somewhere to put my tools and materials for work as my partners property doesn’t have anywhere I can store them.
I have now rented out my property via a letting agent. I have now been informed that if I was to go to my side of the Garden (the part not rented out), then I would need to give the tenants 24h notice, even though I am not in their boundary, or accessing via the house. It’s just like having your neighbors on the other side of the Fence.
I had informed the letting agent before I rented out the property that the reason why I had split the garden was for the reason that I need access to my things.
So my question is, am I in the right to be able to access my things, even though I am not on their side of the garden property that they are renting?
Thanks in advance.
