I want to put a 2 metre fence in front of my neighbour's

This answer was rated:

Hello I want to put a 2 metre fence in front of my neighbour's as the one he has put up is very low and I have no privacy. when his was put up the contractors nailed it from my side.
If I put mine up close to his he will not be able to make any repairs from his side easily can I put my fence up with out telling him first as he is not a reasonable person.
Can he raise any legal objections to stop me ?
Hello. Do you intend to put yyour fence up entirely on your own land?

Thanks. Provided it is no higher than 2 metres, then there is no legal reason why this could not be done. You are not obligated to leave space for him to repair his fence and the Party Wall Act does not apply to fencing. Best, WB
