Hi, We recently tried to get our neighbour to pay for half of the standard fence that we needed to replace the old fence with. We did a subdivision on our block, the lady next door didn't like it, so refused to pay for her share of the fence. We provided her with quotes, and she still refused. So eventually, we had to get it done, so we paid for it all, and are still trying to get her to contribute. She employed a lawyer to avoid paying us anything - made up lies that we never provided her with quotes etc. and also stated that we told her she didn't have to pay at all! While we didn't give her an official "notice to fence", we did talk to her about the fence before we built it and gave her the quotes. Her lawyers have been sending me replies to my requests for money, saying that since we didn't give her a "notice to fence" she is not liable for any costs whatsoever. Here's the tricky bit - we thought that since we paid for the whole fence, it is ours, and told her that we would be happy to remove the fence (temporary fence) and go through the correct procedure, serving her with the notice to fence, and then rebuild the fence, with both of us paying half. (As crazy as it sounds, it would save us money as our fencer would reuse all the same materials that we have already paid for) Her lawyers said that she doesn't give permission for us to remove the fence. Question: Is it our fence to remove, as it was only a "temporary fence"? Or once it's up, is it half hers, even though she didn't contribute towards it? Also, her lawyer said in the letter "they are putting me on notice that she wants no further correspondence in relation to this matter as it is now closed". They cannot just "close" a matter, if I am still disputing it under Property Law, can they?!
