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.shirlywirly60 wrote:thank you for all your replies .i have taken legal advice and as it is a party fence on a shared boundary,these people have no right to paint our side ,even though they paid for and erected the fence.if they move it away from the boundary,they can do what they want with it.it will now be repainted by our son and if they touch it again they will be damaging our property. hope this helps anyone else with nasty,spiteful neighbours,sometimes,the underdog does come out on top!!
2 wrongs don't make a right. What would you do if they then repainted it?
