Avoiding a Border War: Beginning a Conversation with a Neighbor about Border Fences

PDF

Publication #: B-1194
Date Published: 03/01/2009

Publication Author(s):

Description:
Neighbors often wrangle over the location, cost, maintenance, and character of rural fences. Many people dread having a conversation with a neighbor about the fence that separates their properties, fearing their neighbors will refuse to discuss the matter, any conversation they might have will not fully address their fencing concerns, and that such a dialogue may damage their relationship (if they have one).How might you negotiate an agreement with a neighbor regarding border fences that both sides will find satisfactory? In this publication we provide a series of questions to consider in deciding whether to engage neighbors in such a conversation and continue forward to identify key factors to consider in the conversation itself. While its not possible to provide a standard set of guidelines for dealing with the many types of fencing issues that can arise, this general structure for thinking about the issue can be used to resolve issues to the parties mutual benefit.
