neighbours fence

Hi all
A new neighbour has just erected a new fence to the rear of mine. One of the concrete supporting posts is so close as to be touching one of my fence panels so tightly as to making it immovable.
Is this ok? I'm sure that you're not supposed to touch the neighbouring fence.
Help please.

Unless, is there an existing ongoing feud?

Hi
Fence is already there I'm afraid.

There may be some leeway with the offending post, so should sort ok.

Hi sarron,

you could ask the new neighbour if the post could be modified whilst you've got the panel out - maybe "shave" a bit off with an angle grinder?

hope someone like arborlad (rather than despair - no offence despair) can chip in and tell you if this is feasible...

Kind regards, Mac
