Yeah, that was what is was quite like in my town, for a large number of properties, with sweeping views across the valley and the church steeple of a distant village.Reading threads like this make me count my blessings that I live in the country.
Depends on how good the farmer is at maintaining his fences. The farmer on who's land my garden borders is a pain the a***. His fence broke well over a year ago and if it wasn't for our fence his horses would be munching on my lawn. They do regularly put their heads over our fence to have a nibble.Reading threads like this make me count my blessings that I live in the country.
One tiny warning.......I’m self contained other than one fence. We’re talking 30 odd panels at least at the back and one side. This is just ten panels that we don’t own. Anyway, I’ve made my mind up and will be putting my own closed board fence up after hers is up. Just need to double check with the council to check the height (I believe it’s 2 metres) and then I can do exactly what I want with my fence. It’ll be worth it.
Why would he be legally obliged to give her access to his property? If she wants to maintain her fence but doesn’t have access, she’ll have to take her fence down to get to it.One tiny warning.......
As it's her fence, which means she's responsible.
If she wants to be difficult, or perhaps even in time wishes to have repairs done to her fence, or get it covered in preservative.
Might you have to legally remove your "covering fence" to give her access to her fence?
A long shot I guess, but just something to be aware of?
Might you be able to fit your panels up in such a way/method that it's very easy to remove them, just in case, as some point in the future?
Normally the boundary is owned by one party, not two."Might you have to legally remove your "covering fence" to give her access to her fence?"
Then surely the opposite applies and shortly after she has completed said maintenance and you have rebuilt your fence you request access to her side of your fence.

Most commonly that she owns them as per the deeds We have three boundaries at the back and don’t own any of them.What gives her the right to install her fence on the boundary line and not you?
wait till her fence has been removed and before the new one goes up quickly bang in your own posts and tell the old cow not to touch them.
the context here is that we are potentially going to be stuck with one side of the garden with horrible looking fence panels that we aren’t allowed to paint or stain. Therefore I’d like to put my own fence up in front of hers and stain it the same as the rest of my fence panels which I own. If she then asks for access to paint the side of her panels that face my garden I’d be very surprised.Normally the boundary is owned by one party, not two.

All this can be avoided if all parties aren’t so stubborn. But unfortunately people are for whatever reason and this as a last resort the law can intervene. Seems a silly way to go down to me as the costs will be totally wasted but hey ho.
When out neighbour wanted to build their extension they could avoid crane hire if we allowed an excavating tracked vehicle to go over our land on to theirs. Likewise when they had to do roof work, it was safer for the ladders to be on the ground on our land than on theirs for certain places. Why wouldn’t we allow that on the premise that all is made good afterwards.
A neighbourly cooperative way of doing that then is when the OP paints it first and then the neighbour paints it. Perhaps a gently touch up there after and both parties can be happyBecause more often than not, the paint leaks through to the other side and dribbles down. Then there's the top of the fence that's painted too..
I would be perfectly happy to stain both sides, supply the stain etc. Doesn’t want to know.A neighbourly cooperative way of doing that then is when the OP paints it first and then the neighbour paints it. Perhaps a gently touch up there after and both parties can be happy
