Who Should Repair the Fence: You or your Neighbor?
Boundaries. So what are they? If you're thinking that I'm talking about giving your wife space, you're wrong. Technically speaking, a home's boundary is the space between your property and your neighbors. Can you remember buying that house? You were given legal documents and one of them was a small map showing where your property ends. Fences are used to mark these boundaries. Fences
Noting that it’s time to upgrade your fence can be a pain in the neck. Especially when finances are tight or you’re too busy for repair work. It can be a nuisance especially if the fence is sitting on your property and the neighbor’s property. (Fence is sitting on the fence?). In such a scenario, who is responsible? Who should incur the cost of getting a new one?
Before thinking that the fence is your sole responsibility, take time and go through your property deeds. If luck is on your side, the document may clearly state that the fence is not yours. You can rest your case and start pointing fingers to your neighbor. However, this is often not the case. Many times, there is no clear citation. All hell breaks loose and problems arise.

The best thing is to go back to history. Who bought the fence, you or your neighbor? Socially, the one who bought the fence is responsible for repairs and upgrades. However, there is no legal requirement enforcing this. It boils down to a matter of discussion. You need to have a chat and determine what’s the best foot forward. Neither party is legally obliged.
