ok well he was stating that he needed 3 feet either side for him to have access so that he can paint his fence. history as I have known this neighbour for 32 years and have bought the family house he has never painted our side of the fence at any stage. My father painted it once.
he has slide in panel fencing which means he can lift the fence panels out to maintain them if he wishes to. We have erected a fence alongside his in individual feather board fencing onto cant rails so that we have our own boarder line fence. he is protesting that we have blocked him in so he cannot get access to the backside of his panels. if he needed to.
ok also his fence line is higher than ours we made sure that we were six foot maximum from our ground level his is six foot on his side but his land level is higher than ours. he has put in his fence panels but as his kickboards have been set in lower his panels do not reach the full height of his posts. this means he can see the top of our fence line by 3 inches. ( he did not aline his panels to the top of his posts)
I see this has his problem and not ours as we have gone as per the six foot allowance on our side. this is only I would say annoying him as he can see our fence line by 3 inches from his side diningroom window.
does he have a case for his to lower our panels?
personally I cannot see this being the case as we are set lower than his fence posts to start with.
