Access to the backyard townhouse

Hello everyone,

Townhouse block of 3, I am at the centre. Is the access to my backyard will be from the left or right sides ? Or both.
Please see the drawing.
Thanks

Not left, not right.

Neither.

Your access to your backyard is through your front door.

Correct. Townhomes can have easement access from the backyard. From the photo, entry from left looks normal. Is there a street on the right side? And is there a fence which blocks access from there. If not, then you can access from the right side as well.

From what I have seen, many townhomes have common easement in a portion of backyard. So technically you do not own entire backyard. This allows utilities etc to go and get reading. And can also be used if you are getting some work done in your backyard

Thanks, yes there is street on right side but no fence yet. There will be chain link fence added by builder as shown in the photo.

I assume after adding the fence no access from right side.

Yes. I would think so. Looks like the expecation is to use the entrance from left side then.
