Paying for neighbor's fence?
So here's my situation...we moved into this house three years ago and my neighbor moved in at the same time. (this was a new development) At that time, she built a fence on her property (4" from the property line) She never asked us to pay for half, for she said she needed one because of her dogs. Now, we have decided to enclose our yard with a gate. Yes, we would technically be sharing her fence. Now she is demanding we pay for half of the fence cost because we would benefit from it's use. Do I have to pay her if my gate is on my property? There would be a four inch gap between the gate and fence, and it's been there for three years! Please let me know what you think because she is being really nasty about this whereas the other two neighbors are saying we don't have to pay them because it was there idea so they paid for it at that time.
