I'm a few weeks away from handover (yay!). The neighbor behind us is probably about a month or so away from finishing theirs. I recently found out that they are getting their builder to fence the property as part of their contract. Our neighbor and I share a 15m boundary which is currently separated by a temporary fence provided by my builder. This temporary fencing will be removed upon handover.
My questions are:
- Can I request their builder to set up temporary fencing until their build is over?
- Can my neighbor ask me for a "share" of the fencing costs? Given that they are getting it done through the builder, I'm sure the fencing costs will be much more expensive than a standard quote
I'm dreading the feeling of living in a new house without having any fence at the back! Any suggestions will be welcome.
