What are Boundary Fences?

boundry fenceA boundary fence marks a land division or partition. Typically, it is built between two properties, to mark the line where one property ends and the other begins.

These fences are owned by both parts. In these circumstances, both owners are responsible for a boundary fence’s maintenance and repairs, unless they make another arrangement that is convenient to both of them. However, these agreements can only be made between current neighbors; if one of the owners relocates, the agreement is no longer available with the person that buys the property.
