in Montgomery County, VA -- If I build a fence abutting the property line between 2 residences (there is no dispute as to where the line lies):
1) Is my neighbor
prevented from using the other side of the fence (e.g., to hang flower pots or bird feeders) and/or from allowing vines (e.g., Virginia Creeper or Kudzu, which will harm a fence) by the rule of trespass ?
2) As a practical matter, how do I maintain the other side of the fence ?
3) If they would "use" the fence as described in 1 or 2 above, can they be liable to reimburse me for
1/2 (half) the cost of the fence -- as they would be if they were to "attach" to the fence ?
4) Does "attach" require physical equipment (screws, nails, wires) --
or can effective continuation (e.g., 2-3 inches away -- too close to allow passing thru) without physically adjoining a fence to my pre-existing fence satisfy the definition of "attach" and thus require reimbursement to m for half the cost of my fence.
