When a fence between two properties needs repair/replacement who is usually responsible for paying? Do both neighbors split it 50/50?
What about installing new one? Do neighbors split the cost? Sometimes? Never?

I'm not sure where you live but in most places there is one, and only one, owner of a fence. Where one person's property ends the other person's property begins. Usually there is no "common" property. Therefore, the fence is located on one of the neighbor's property who will be responsible for the fence. If the other neighbor damaged the fence, however, that neighbor may be held responsible for repairing the fence.
