Hi katekate,

so the new fence abuts your decking whereas your old fence didn’t?

and the new fence stands 4 inches into your land for its entire length? and this is clear to show?

kind regards, Mac

Hi Mac, yes, it's pretty clear.
thanks for answering my second point, what about the first?

Sorry, Mac, I don't understand your first question.

Hi katekate,

before the neighbour did anything:

you had an extension, some decking and a fence - did the decking butt up close the fence? was it attached to the extension in a similar fashion to the new fence?

kind regards, Mac

Yes, before they did anything, the fence attached to our wall. They just replaced my fence and said because they replaced it so it is now their fence.

Unless they agree that you own the now replaced fence you have a legal dispute with them. It's no different to if they replaced your front door. They are merely stealing one thing that belongs to you and compensating you for it by replacing it.

I agree, I just ask their manager to call me back.
