what happens if no agreement is meet?
Thank you for your follow-up, Steve.In this situation both parties have exactly the same right to build the fence (or refuse to build it). If there is no agreement the fence stays up or one party tears it down, builds the fence he wants on his side of the property line, and leaves the other portion to the other party. Or there may be mediation options where both can go to court and ask the judge to mediate. The judge would generally dismiss it, however unless one person ends up building the fence and then suing the other party to recoup his or her losses.Good luck.
