Stopped at my parents house to bring my father some food and groceries. He’s outta commission with the Chinese flu
Anyway as I’m here the neighbors are getting a privacy fence put in and my father told me the bozo next door asked him to pay half why would anyone ever have the balls to ask their neighbor for money like that. It’s beyond me. Have some shame you fucking turd
You’re the one who wants the new fence. You pay for it. Simple as that cuck boy. My father of course told them to get bent
I bought a house in TX where the builder fenced in all the properties. So all the neighbors had to go in to repair damaged fencing. There were fights because some neighbors stained or sealed their side to protect where others didn’t. So the neighbors that tried maintaining complained that the other should pay more than 1/2.
I ran into this issue. Both parties wanted to split the fence but it was an utter nitemare deciding which contractor to choose. One neighbour wanted a licensed and bonded contractor but did not want to pay their rates which were more than double, sometimes triple.
If it’s on the property line and the fence is in shambles, I don’t think it’s crazy to ask to split it in half. Fences are stupid expensive and if it’s right on the line, both people benefit. Was the prior fence in shit condition? If so, your dad is cheap af. If it was not in bad shape and neighbour just wants a new fence, that neighbour can get fucked.
