    Who owns a fence?

    The fence located in my backyard is falling over from one of the post.  It is falling over on my neighbors side towards their house.  It is a pretty easy fix, but they've done nothing for 2-3 weeks.  I'm hoping to go over with a buddy today or tomorrow and screw it back into place.  It happened before and one of my buddies was able to hammer it back in.  When I talked to them they said they didn't know how to fix fences.

    I'm just wondering who is responsible for things like this?  Are these fences co-owned?  The wooden slats are on my side.  One of my neighbors said the previous owner of my house put up the fence, but they also have a fence they surrounds their entire property.


    Just filling in during 2mans absence.

    Fences are traditionally installed with the slats facing away from the owner of the fence.  They are not co-owned.
