In my backyard, I have chain-link fencing on both sides, sharing the fences with my neighbors. I’d like to put up a more substantial fence, but I don’t know who owns the fences. Do I own one and a neighbor another? Or do we both have to agree if we want to modify the fencing? I’m sure this is a common issue in our part of town, so I thought I’d throw it out there to you.”
We discussed a related fencing issue back in October. I’d think that you could just go up to your neighbor and say, “hey I’d like to put up a new fence, would you mind?”. If you are planning on paying for it I would be surprised if there was a problem. But for the record does anyone know the exact legal ruling here?
