Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
It would be determined by whether the fence was on the property line.If it was on the line she has not right to move it.If it was on her property then she is within her right to move it.You are not legally obligated for the survey or cost of it, and related time off, etc the neighbor hired it done.You are entitled to check and see if the survey shows where the true property line is.That determines where the fence legally can be located.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Please let me know if you have more.Thanks again.
You can ignore the bills here, you would need to have your own survey here and then sue for removal to the legal boundary . I guess you have to decide if it is worth the cost to do so and then sue her for it.
