Your Top Fencing FAQs Answered

Everlast Services have been providing the people of Melbourne with quality fencing solutions for over 20 years. There’s a lot more to fencing than holes, pales and posts so Everlast Services has decided to answer some of the top questions that come their way.

How do I broach a new fence with my neighbour?

Make sure you’re on good terms with your neighbours before you bring up the fence. Go around and introduce yourself and when you feel as though the time is right bring up the idea. It’s important you introduce it in a consultative way rather than outlining what you will be doing.

After you’ve agreed on the fence you should start drawing up the dimensions, design etc. and show it to them. Remember, both of you have to look at it so don’t be too precious if you can’t get exactly what you want.

Remember to outline the full scope of your intentions, so if you’re going to attach a shade cloth or lattice work to the fence let them know. It’s all about being upfront and honest throughout the project.

What do I do if my neighbours want to dispute a new fence?

Disputes over fences are common. If one does arise the first thing you need to do is familiarise yourself with the rules. If you know the rules you can ensure that your plans are within them and your neighbour won’t be able to take legal action.

It’s always best to try and settle the dispute face-to-face. Notes and letters can be taken out of context. Make sure you stay calm and give them a chance to outline their concerns. Try and find common ground and explain that what you are planning is within the guidelines. Professional dispute resolution can be costly and chances are you’ll both be happier settling it yourselves.

If you reach an agreement get it in writing and ensure both parties sign-it, that way you have something to turn to if the issue flares up again. If the dispute cannot be resolved get legal help.
