The house next door to our property has been sold and the new owners recently told us they will demolish a garage that makes up part of the barrier between our lots. I have no issue with them doing this, but they want me to pay half the cost of building a new fence where the garage wall now stands. What are my rights if I want to contest this?

    The law should require your neighbour should pay the full cost of the fence, unless the garage is in a state of disrepair. Otherwise it's no different to pulling down a perfectly good fence, just for artistic preferences.
