    Default Neighbor Removed My Fence Without Permission

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: TX

    My neighbor removed a shared fence which was built on my side of the property line. They put up a new fence in it's place. I was not contacted prior to the fence being removed. What rights do I have and should I seek damages?

    You got a new fence. What damages have you incurred?

    a crappy new fence is less desirable than my existing fence. Can I do anything?

    What are your damages?

    Are you absolutely sure the fence is considered part of your property?

    from your description, it would appear the crappy new fence is your existing fence.


    have you spoken to the neighbor about this? If so, please pass along what was said.


    and

    do you have a survey that shows the location of the fence in relation to the property line?

    how far onto your property was the fence?

    did the neighbor place the new fence in the same place?

    The neighbor put the new fence in the same place. Old fence posts remain in ground. They just replaced the fence slats with some unfinished wood.

    Have you talked to your neighbors?

    After that....you need a land survey to prove the old fence was on your property. I assume you also have some photos of your home with your old fence lying around?
