I live in NY and I have had my property surveyed and staked in preparation for putting up a fence in my backyard.
My question is, when I dig the holes for the concrete support footers, they will be 6 to 8" in diameter, and will require a hole that is 22" wide
I'll be using these:
If i want to place the fence (which is 3" thick) to be just an inch from my property line, I'd need to dig into the neighbors yard, and part of the cement footing would really be on/underneath their property.
Would they be able to sue me? Would I have to move the fence?
