    Default Who Owns the Fence

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: Texas
    Hurricane Ike wiped out our fence. We live in a subdivision and the fence on the side ofmy house with a nieghbor was taken down by wind. The previous owners put that fence up about 10 years ago-we did the other sides that same year so i remember. My new neighbor who owns the home now thinks we should go in halves as it sits on the property line. I assumed since my last neighbor put up that fence, that it belonged to them. How do I determine who is responsible for replacing the fence?

    No one is responsible for replacing the fence.

    If it is your nieghbors fence it is there choice to replace it. If it is your fence then you have the choice to replace it or not.

    Going in on it together is a good compromise. But that could come back bad in the end. If you want the fence there then I suggest you replace it with in the zoning codes for your town.
