-Question: What happens if my neighbours are not willing to share the cost of the fence?
Answer: Navigating fence installation costs with neighbours can pose challenges. It’s advisable to initiate an open and friendly dialogue with your neighbours, highlighting the advantages of a jointly funded fence, such as increased property value and shared aesthetics. In instances where amicable agreement proves difficult, there is an option to legally compel the neighbour to contribute half of the cost of a chain-link fence. It’s essential to be aware that the feasibility of this approach may vary depending on local bylaws, so it is recommended to consult with the bylaw division in your specific city.
