Good neighbor fence is true to some extent, but neighbor’s peace can be disturbed by a dispute over who really owns the fence. Conflicts often occur when it is time to repair or replace fences, or when new construction or new owners take place. Finding who owns the fence can take some time but is not a difficult process.
Get a survey. Especially if the property is newer, the county can have a recent survey on file. If not, call a licensed surveyor to have a property survey done. Be sure to ask about costs, as the survey can cost several hundred dollars or more. Outline the property after the survey. The surveyor will leave a 24-inch steel pin in the corners of the property. Tie a string between the poles to create a line down the length of the property. As an alternative, shoot a laser line between the poles. Decide on whose property the fence is located. If the fence lies in the free space between the two properties or directly on a shared plot boundary, it is called a division or boundary fence, which is discussed in the next section.
Determine the ownership of occupancy if the fence is between or directly on the plot boundary. Anyone who uses the land up to the fence is considered the owner. If you have grass and cut the area directly up to the fence but your neighbor does the weed to grow on his / her side, then you own the fence through coating. Determine the ownership by joining other structures. If you cannot determine ownership of the pavement, examine which buildings or other fences are attached to the fence in question. The fence becomes the property of a person whose structures it is connected to. Determine the ownership by containment. If the two previous methods do not establish ownership, look to see how the fence in question encloses properties. If it creates complete containment of your country, but not your neighbor, then you are the owner.
In most areas, you need to get permission before building a fence. If your neighbor got the right permit, then the fence probably wouldn’t be on your property. So if the fence your neighbor built is on your property, then your neighbor probably won’t get the right permit to build it. Getting your neighbor to remove or move the fence could make them or future property owners a service. Get asked to make sure you know the property limit of your property. You can also check the deed of your property, which should be located at your county player’s office. Talk to your neighbor. Explain that the fence is on your property and kindly ask for it to be removed. If he resists explain that the right conditions were probably not submitted.
