From the Forum: New Fences and Property Lines

Photo by John Salzarulo


    The fence came down between neighboring backyards and an owner is concerned that the neighbor might be encroaching on the property line with a new fence. While a survey will sort out the property line issue, the owner is wondering if they should replace their own fence at the same time. Should they chat with the neighbor about a shared fence rather than both putting up new fences?

    Please chime in with your advice.
