Buying a fence and setting it up formulates a lot of useful ideas. You require some advice about construction, design, and your choices of a fence. It's best to get some help from professional fencing tradespeople so that you can check out all your options.
Fencing and site issues
There's a range of possible issues in putting up a new fence:
Dividing fences and neighbours: It's best for you and the neighbours to be on the same page about the fencing situation. You're typically expected to split costs 50-50, but disputes do arise, either about the amount being spent or the type offence. Under the Dividing Fences Acts in most states, there are necessary procedures which include some possibilities for dispute resolution and mediation.
Site access: Installing a fence requires good working access to the site for fencing equipment and the space to erect the fence safely.
Trees: The common practice of planting trees on fence lines can create real problems when trying to put up a new fence. Damage to the trees can do damage to your wallet, so some thought is required when confronted with this situation.
The property line: Building on someone else's property is usually caused by the fact that the old property boundaries were incorrectly measured when the old fence was put up. If there's any doubt whatever about the property boundaries, a surveyor will be able to help.
What you need- Getting advice.
You will need an on-site consultation with your fencing contractor, so it's a good move to make sure the contractor's fully aware of the issues and any problems with the type of fencing materials. In all cases, they'll be able to provide a wide range of options.
The fence needs replacement, but an alternative is a repair job if the fence is stable and safe. This option minimizes disruption to the existing arrangement and is usually more palatable to neighbours.
Partial replacement of the broken down areas of old fence with the same type of fence. This is another objection-remover and doesn't get the same level of resistance.
There are many possible problem solvers, and experienced fencing contractors will know them all. A phone call to a contractor is a lot cheaper than a court case, and the solutions in these cases will usually satisfy both parties.
Most importantly the contractor will also be able to assess the situation onsite thoroughly. This means your advice will be based on a full understanding of the case, and a considered approach to dealing with all the issues, including trees, property lines and access. Fence Company
