All due respect to the poster above, but that's rubbish.

They have REPLACED a fence, therefore it should follow the original line of the fence and not deviate from that. I've had a fence replaced that was totally gone, rotten out and simply not there. We used the points where the old posts where still rotting in the ground to set the new one up, this lined up perfectly with the end gardens own posts and is not taking up any more space either side of the boundary line.
Its more like the blokes got a known fence erector in (as the OP says he has had panels done before and decking that's pushing against the fence) and hes done a rubbish job.

Hopefully the OP has got pictures showing the difference in where the fence now sits and can approach the neighbour and either have them agree to move it back to the old line, or agree they have now gifted them the fence.

The only thing good out of this is the OP now knows the neighbour isn't to be trusted and has hopefully a nice strong fence to keep the bully out.

Hi
As stated by Sanctury

Mr Sheen do you think it is a mite suspicious that the neighbour has installed decking, which was pushing the old fence into the OP's garden?

As the fence is now in your garden Quitelife I believe you would be in your rights to now grow roses or climbers of your choice over your new fence.
