Is your neighbour refusing to pay for your dividing fence?

If you have a dividing fence between your property and your neighbours, you are both equally responsible for it. This includes the cost of maintaining the fence, for which the cost should be divided equally between you and you neighbour. If there is no dividing fence, but one neighbour would like a fence for privacy or other purposes, then any adjoining landowners are still equally responsible for the cost, even if they do not want the fence.
