My neighbor's 45 year-old wood fence was crumbling and I was relandscaping my back yard. I offered (and she accepted) to pay to remove her fence, which was entirely on her property next to the boundary, and install a new vinyl fence on the property line. She is only paying for her new gate. As my fencing contractor started work, she started harping that it wasn't on the property line, even though the 5 inch posts obviously line up with the survey marker in the sidewalk and the end fence post that had never faltered in its 45 year life.
What constitutes the boundary fence being "on the property line"? Must all the fence panels fall directly on the property line? Is there any "wiggle room" allowed for the panels or posts? She wants to get a surveyor out to check the line; if the line is correct and intersects the posts, but the fence panels are plus or minus an inch off line, what must be done, if anything?
Thanks in advance!
