I do not know for sure. It really appears like they purposely removed the fence so the chain link fence would be the default line. I know the previous owner died and then his daughter moved in but could not keep up the payments. Then a contractor bought it and did a complete remodel. The arial photograph from the city shows the fence down for at least the time of my purchase. (Arial photo shows my car in the driveway)
Would this apply even though there have been multiple owners during this time. This appears like being rewarded for being devious and taking advantage of a person who was ill at the time.
