When looking at your property from the front is the fence to the left or right yours?

I have very unruly neighbours who claim they can put anything on their fence.Which i might add is ruining them.I always thought the fence to your left was your responsibilty.Am i correct?

Answers:
The "fence on your left" rule is a bit of an urban legend. You need to check your property deeds. If the fence is on their property or on the property line, unfortunately, there's little you can do. However, if it is proved to be your fence, you can start taking them to task!
right
It's usually left, but check your deeds to make sure.
Yes it is the boundary to your left. But it is also the left when you standing at the bck which is the opposite boundary to the front.
Depends which way it was erected. If the nice side is on your end then it is your responsibility!! x
lmfao, there is no rule like that. It has to do with your property line haha. It's on the deeds...
i have been told that it is the fence to my right that i am responsible for. i live in a semi detached council property. the house joined to me is housing association. the wind blew the left hand fence down and the neighbours landlords replaced it.

you could try putting another fence up inside your boundry. that would make your garden a little smaller, but would look better than what your unruly neighbours are doing to it.
It depends on where the property line is. You can tell from the construction of the fence. If the decorative/finished side is towards your yard then the fence is yours.
Neither side could be your or both sides maybe yours. Look at the contract on the house you both.I will have that information.
i have installed fences,if done correctly the right edge of the fence, or wall is the end of his property..just turn on your water and let it run on his fence till it rots
I have the same kind of neighbors except they allow their plump kids to break our fence repeatedly. For looks and upkeep on your side of the property. If my state's laws are similar to yours then I would say the fence to the left is their property.
the one with your yard in it is yours.
Is right side when facing property and left when looking out at garden!
If the fence is right on the property line, then neighbors share responsibility for the upkeep. If it is on one side or the other of the property line, then the property owner whose property it is fully upon claims the entire fence.

I've never heard of the "fence on the left" rule.
I have no neighbors and no fence
your fence will be the one with the supporting posts in you garden.If you cant see any posts check your deeds.
The fence is the property of the person who had it built. If your property was frenced by the owners on both sides of you, you don't own either fence.
What the heck are you talking about?
Where I come from you put the fence up on your property.
Who ever puts the fence up owns it, they bought it.
In the UK there's no hard and fast rule. You need to look at your title documents closely. If that doesn't give an indication, the side where the posts are is generally accepted as being the owner.

Boundary disputes are a pain in the butt and are rarely resolved properly - lawyers love 'em! if it really bugs you about the only solution is to sacrifice a few inches of your property and erect a fence which is indisputably yours.
The fence belongs to whoever paid to have it put up.
yes, you are correct
What fence? I tend to shoot first and ask questions later.
Are you in England? If so, check the website below. There are a lot of different answers here which are very confusing for you. Type fences into the search box and you will go to neighbour disputes. scroll down to boundaries fences and walls and you should find the information you require. Hope that helps.
to the right is yours
It depends on exactly where the fence is. If it is actually on their property, then it is their fence. You can do nothing.

If it is exactly on both of your property then there is probably a local statute that handles conflict resolution. You might just need to call the local county office to find out.
