Boundary Fences

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With almost every property, boundary fences either exist or are to be erected.

There are specific laws with boundary fences, in relation to adjoining owners obligations.

Both property owners are generally responsible for contributing to the cost of a fence and normally would agree on the type to be erected, thus sharing the cost.

If an agreement can’t be reached there are minimum obligations set within the Boundary Fences Act 1908.Boundary Fence 01

Tierney Law have prepared an easy to read document answering all the general questions in relation to Boundary Fences.

      Hi Andrea,
      This is a specific question for that area. My suggestion is you talk with your local council planning department. They will give you the information you require.
