Which side of the fence is mine council house?

sometimes it's the left and sometimes the right. you used to be able to tell by whether you had the good side of the fence or the back of it facing your property, the bad side would be yours. I think it's right hand side unless you can prove otherwise via property deeds or similar.

Likewise, which side of the fence is my responsibility?

Whether all property owners on the same street are responsible for their left side fences or for those, positioned on the right-hand side, will depend on the existing land use and development plans.

Furthermore, how do you know if fence is yours or neighbors? Determine ownership by occupancy if the fence lies between or directly on the property line. Whoever uses the land up to the fence is considered the owner. If you have grass and mow the area directly up against the fence but your neighbor allows the weeds to grow on his/her side, then you own the fence by occupancy.

Then, who is responsible for council house fencing?

Fences that are your responsibility Any fences or walls that act as a boundary between a Council home and a neighbouring garden are the responsibility either of the tenant or their neighbour.

Who is responsible for the fence at the bottom of my garden?

The transfer or conveyance deed might state who owns it, but if it's not in writing, then look out for any T-mark to the boundaries. The stalk of the 'T' will sit on the boundary and come out into your garden or property, which means that fence is your responsibility.
