In that case your son should not be painting it without the agreement of the neighbours. Both parties must agree to an action on a party feature.

2 wrongs don't make a right. What would you do if they then repainted it?

This has all the signs of mushrooming out of control over a fence.

The neighbour paid for and erected a fence and therefore believes they 'own' it, next door meanwhile they have taken legal advice and been told it is 'shared' ....let battle commence...

No doubt there will be solicitors letters back and fore stressing the position of each neighbour, one paints it ;the other paints over it - get more solicitors letters back and fore again - Ooh well keeps the solicitors living in luxury in magnificent private residences away from neighbourhoods where people relentlessly paint fences to annoy the previous painter.

I was thinking that perhaps once it is painted over that would be the end of it. Then I remembered Raphael and his wonderful fence painting, uh oh! :lol: ... ht=bondage ... ght=hansel
