My question involves real estate located in the State of: SC
My new neighbors are loud and their kids and dogs are all over my property. I am going to put up a privacy fence. I still have the markers from their survey and my old survey which I will use for the fence line. I told the neighbor nicely that I plan to put up the fence and asked him if he wanted a double sided fence so that it would look nicer on his side and asked him to pay the extra, which would be less than half of the price.
He got mad, of course, and said that I couldn't put it directly on the line and wanted a two foot offset. Threatened to sue if I did. I wouldn't have a problem with the offset since I have 5 acres, He has about 3/4ths of an acre, however I would have to cut down 50+ year old trees if I put it on a two foot offset or give up about eight foot and leave the trees on his side.
I have called county offices and searched online trying to find out what is legal without any success. I live way out in the country and building permits aren't required for anything other than a new house.
