Who is responsible for fence repairs between my house and my neighbor?

Once a fence is installed on or near the property line, it becomes more-or-less jointly owned. As time passes, it doesn’t matter which side the pickets are on, nor who actually paid for the fence; rather it becomes the joint responsibility of the adjacent owners. On many properties, fences are not required.
