My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand I am very limited on what I can tell you and that you may have to get more detailed advice.
The tenant may be liable as well as a the landlord.
I assume you have received a quotation of what the costs of the repairs will be.
The full cost of the fence is the landlords and if he wants to sue the tenant he can.
You have to send both him and the tenant a letter of demand setting out what the cost of the fence will be and seeking they pay for it. If that refuse then you will sue them both.
The following link is the link about how to sue in WA
You are claiming the cost of the fence and an order that the tenant or the owner or both pay.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
