How close can a grill be to a fence?
It is recommended that the grill should at least be 3 feet away from the house, fence, or any structures. Regardless of what type of grill you have, see to it that you follow the 3-foot rule when you set up the grill outdoors.
Is it illegal to look over your neighbor’s fence?
Can my neighbour look over my fence? In NSW, there is no legal right to privacy. So if a neighbour can see into your backyard, they are allowed to look at or listen to what is going on.
What can I do if my Neighbour has painted my fence?
If you want to change anything about a fence that legally belongs to your neighbour, you should ask their permission first – even if you’re only painting or staining your side of the fence.
Can I clean my side of neighbors fence?
5 Answers. Yes, talk to your neighbor, but you can just do your side. I’ve pressure washed my fence that looked like that (entire fence… I wasn’t matching another part of my fence,) and removed the mold (that’s what has turned the boards gray) down to where the boards are a golden tan again.
Can Neighbours complain about BBQ smoke?
If you have a situation with neighbours whose barbeque causes you a problem and they disregard any polite complaints that you make, you may have a claim in nuisance. Smoke caused by cooking is unlikely to be a statutory nuisance. However if you feel that that is excessive the council may look into this for you.
Where should a grill be placed on a patio?
Set up your grill at least 10 feet away from buildings and other structures, as well as dry vegetation that potentially could catch fire. This includes awnings and porch overhangs; while it may be tempting to cart the grill under cover to cook during rain, it’s not a safe idea, as flare-ups could lead to a house fire.
Can my Neighbour attach things to my fence?
The short answer to this question is, of course, “no”. If you own the fence and you have not granted your neighbour permission to do so, they are not allowed to attach or nail things to your fence.
Can my Neighbour build right to my boundary?
In general, your neighbour only has the right to build up to the boundary line (line of junction) between the two properties but there are circumstances when they can legitimately build on your land. You can give consent for them to build a new party wall and foundations on your land.
Can Neighbour lean things on my fence?
Only if your neighbour gives you permission to do so. Leaning things against your neighbour’s fence, hanging things on your neighbour’s fence, even using your neighbour’s fence as a makeshift retaining wall, will place a much heavier burden on the fence panels and supporting posts than they were designed to bear.
How do you tell if a fence is yours or neighbors?
Title plans are one of the best ways to see which fence belongs to your property. Title plans may feature a ‘T’ mark showing many of your property’s boundaries, and who is responsible for maintaining them. A T mark on one side of the boundary indicates that the person on that side is responsible for the fence.
Can I stop my Neighbour painting my fence?
Who can paint or otherwise alter a fence once it’s up? Only the owner of the fence may make any changes to it, even where the other side of the fence is on neighbouring property. This means that if you erect a fence in your garden, your neighbour must ask for permission before painting or staining their side of it.
What are the 4 types of boundary disputes?
Broadly speaking, the majority of these disputes can be broken down into four categories:
- Lot line disputes.
- Fence, landscaping, and outbuilding disputes.
- Access disputes.
- Adverse possession claims.
Can I stain my side of the fence?
Painting both sides of the fence can be acceptable if the fence didn ‘t fall on your neighbor’s property line. Because that would mean the fence is all to yourself. You don’t have to explain or even ask permission, because you are building within your property and it is your right.
How do I stop my neighbors vines from growing on the fence?
Plastic or Tarps. Vines on your fence may be killed by simply blocking the sunlight they need to survive. Use an opaque material, such as heavy black plastic or a tarp, and cover the entire length of the fence where vines are growing.
Do you need to treat both sides of a fence?
While you should always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations, the general rule is that wood fences should be stained every five years and sealers should be applied every two to three. Of course, if you are staining and sealing it makes sense to seal after staining and vice versa.
