After reading all of the incredibly helpful posts, I feel brave enough to post one of my own!
We're at fixing stage of our new house in the Highlands Estate in Craigieburn. I'm just starting to think about fencing as we'd like to get this done before moving in, preferably between PCI & handover, and from what I've read it can take a while because of the timeframes for providing notice.
My question is around how far down the sides of the house we go. On the left of our house, where it's set back from the boundary, it's fine, we know we have to go to 2m behind the closest facade.
On the right hand side of the house, however, our garage is right on the boundary.
Do we fence the entire way down the side of the house, including over the garage wall on the boundary? Or do we just fence our backyard to the start of the garage, and essentially have the garage wall as the divider between the two boundaries?
From what I can see of our fencing plan, it appears to stop where the garage wall meets the boundary.
And, if our neighbour wants to fence all the way down the side of the garage, are we liable to pay half for that?
I've spent a few days researching this ( )and can't quite seem to figure out what the norm is, so any advice would be very welcomed!
Thanks in advance!
