I have a Victoria semi detached rental property that has been in the family for 100 years and we are trying to establish who is responsible for the boundaries of the property as there is no clue on the title deeds.
There is currently 4ft walls between us and each of our neighbours, but in each case, the neighbours have erected 6ft fences to give more privacy rather than do anything about the walls which are now falling apart.
If the pillars of the wall are on the neighbours side, would this mean it is their responsibility or would the walls be considered as party walls and therefore joint responsibility? Perhaps someone could point me in the direction of who to ask (apart from the neighbours themselves).
There does not seem to be any standard rules about it always being on the left or right so quite difficult with an inherited property.
