painting fence - who owns it??

6 months ago

We moved into our home about a year ago and share a fence with our neighbours. When I enquired with the previous seller who was selling on behalf of her deceased parents, she told me that her parents and the neighbours went halves on the fence a few years ago when it was replaced.

Our neighbours are quite awkward and have never been friendly or forthcoming since we moved and it causes me a lot of anxiety to even consider asking them their permission if I can paint our side.

However, if the fence was paid for by both our previous sellers and the neighbours, then would we be okay to paint it without asking?
