Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Have you determined who originally erected the wall?
And the wall is on the property line, but not over it on your land, correct?
Ok, then unfortunately, it is considered her personal property and you couldn't do anything to it, even paint it, without her permission or she could sue you for damage to her personal property.
So I hate to say it, because she is being a jerk, but you would have to remove the electrical box if she won't let you keep it on the wall.
I am very sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers based on my knowledge and experience, even when I know the answer doesn’t make the customer happy...
