If the landlord owns the fence, in most cases they would be responsible for maintaining it.

In some instances, deeds may not clearly indicate ownership and some may even include repair covenants that relate to the fence in question.

Furthermore, sometimes even Land Registry documents can be misleading. There have been cases in the past where one party has taken on maintenance responsibility for so long they have actually become legally responsible for the upkeep. Such cases are rare and extremely difficult to prove, but it does happen.
