Neighbour Fence Agreement

My neighbors have built a swimming pool near the border and are legally required to fence it. Should I help them pay? Yes, but your contribution should not exceed the amount you would pay if the pool did not exist. That is, half the cost of a „reasonable“ fence in this area of the border. In BC, landowners are allowed to build a fence around their land (or plant a hedge). Some rules limit the type of fence allowed and where it can be placed, as explained below. A fence may not necessarily be an accurate representation of the demarcation line. Whatever the position of the fence, it does not change the actual border situation or the legal property rights on the ground. You can disable this problem if you address the problem in your fencing notice. In this way, the court may authorize you or anyone mandated by you to build the fence, at the first hearing, to enter your neighbour`s property. You and your neighbour may agree that the rails and fencing will enter one of your lots, but the closing law contains some rules that apply if you cannot accept. These rules apply to some types of fencing and not to others, as not all types of fences have rails and framing. A fence does not only mean a series of poles, wires or plates; On the contrary, it is all that surrounds an area – including a ditch, an embankment, a hedge, or even a stream – and it does not need to extend all along the border. It also contains doors, beef grills or anything that is part of the paddock.

A separation fence is normally erected on the common demarcation line between two characteristics, although it can be built on the template if the physical characteristics of the country prevent it. But this has implications for ownership. My neighbour wants to erect a barrier at our border, which is currently a common access (no legal facilitation). My front door is on this demarcation line, just 1m from the border, and the only access to my yard will be along a 30m-long <. It will be physically impossible to get furniture in/out of the house or backyard. Do I have a reason to fight? Under the Fences Amendment Act, the owner is usually the registered landowner or someone who owns 100,000 Us per cent of the land. Owner companies are also considered owners with respect to the division of fences between common ownership in a subdivision of the owner company and foreign lands. Unfortunately, in this situation, the local authority is generally exempt from tax under the Fencing Act, as there is generally "a fencing contract that protects a local authority from the responsibility of contributing to any work on a fence between a public reserve entrusted or managed to that local authority and all adjacent lands." There are a few exceptions to the definition of "owner" and therefore to the closing of responsibilities. For example, municipal and other councils that own or operate land for the purpose of a public park or public reserve are excluded and the crown exemption from the distribution of fencing between the Crown and adjacent lands remains unchanged. However, a long-term tenant is only liable for a payment obligation if you make specific notifications required by the Closing Act. The tenant can then participate in negotiations with you and your neighbour and their agreement on the work is necessary. If you want to build a fence between your property and that of your neighbour, you don`t have to argue forever about how this should happen or who pays.

Fencing law establishes your rights and obligations. If these provisions do not apply, the law provides that the rails and frame are placed on the same side as the previous fence (if any). In all other cases, the rails and frames must be placed on the side according to the slightest function of the weather. If you still find that the noise is too much, then the next step would be to either increase the height of the fence or look into an option more
