Question in regards to dividing fence. We have just finished building in QLD. We have just finished our boundary fence with our neighbors. They have build their garage to zero boundary about 200mm from actual boundary.
We have build the fence from the end of there garage wall meaning it is now apart of the boundary fence. Local and state laws say is sufficient as the space between his garage and the boundary is dead space as it unusable due to minimal access.
The neighbor has now asked for the fence to continue as he wants to access this space ( don’t know how they will fit down the 150-200mm gap)
My question is as we have already established a suitable and satisfactory boundary fence should the neighbor cover the complete costs of this addition?

Why not just do it - if they pay half.
They are probably trying to show some "muscle" - we have a similar d-head next door.
They will be the only ones hurt by it - and it will not cost you much. Half of 6-7 metres of Color-bond fencing.
Maybe they want to put something there - eg spare piping etc. BUT - will prevent them inspecting the brick line - eg for termites/white ants etc.

If the townhouses are strata title, then bodycorp should be the ones arranging repair / replacement. If Torrens title, 50/50 split with neighbour.
