So again, my suggestion, talk to the township building office, do what they say to do, and you will likely maintain a good relationship with your neighbor.
Unwavering Commitment to Service
Most towns have an ordinance where the "finished" side must face your neighbors. Some have an ordinance that the fence has to be a specific distance from the property line (not ON the property line).
Contact your local zoning office for the information, and proper permits (if required) before you install the fence. Will save headaches down the road when you are going to sell the property.
Remember, good fences make good neighbors !!!
Thanks for your question.
The best part of the fence has to be put placed facing your neighbors. The side with the pieces across will have to be facing you.
Make sure you get a survey so your fence is installed correctly within your property boundaries. Check with your town what are the requirements to put fence.
With so many choices out there it should be a nice addition to the look of your home.
Any other questions feel free to contact me.
