Hello, we live next door to a rented property. We have contacted the agent to report their boundary fence. It is falling apart and has holes in it. It is a simple picket fence about 4 foot high. The bush half way along the bottom of their garden is pushing over on to our garden. The tenant doesn’t want the green bush taking down so they are not doing anything. At Christmas a visiting dog run into our garden and worried our chickens, but they don’t have a dog themselves.
We have sent photos to the agent but they are not replacing the fence. It is coming away from the post as the other end of the fence.
I thought that the landlord is legally responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of boundary fences. Is that correct?
If they refuse to replace the fence can we replace it and charge them for the cost of doing it if we give them some warning in writing?
