Claire D :

Hello. Does the boundary belongs to you and is it your responsibility to maintain it?

JACUSTOMER-vd0gmumo- :

yes the boundry fense is mine and i am responable to maitain it

Claire D :

Hi. In that case, they are not permitted to paint the fence without your consent. The problem lies in enforcing it and it becoming a neighbour dispute. However, I would suggest that you write a letter to them and ask them to refrain from doing so, and if they do, you will need reimbursement for a replacement fence panel/ fence. By the way, the reason that you could not accept is because I only ask for information and I disabled the accept button so you would not accidentally accept before I have given my answer. You can however do so, if you wish.
