I have a property law question: I’m in the Melbourne suburbs and the fence between my house and my neighbour’s house is falling to bits. This is not great as both of us have children and animals (the dogs wandering are a big concern!). I would like to get a new fence put up that is safe and also gives us proper privacy from each other. I had a quick chat to my neighbours to raise the issue, but they basically said they don’t want to spend any money. What can I do to get them to contribute to building a new fence, or at least repairing the old one?
