Town house backyards

I own a townhouse and we are getting new fences. Right now the fences we have go with the line of the house. The houses sitting farther back from the road have yards that are farther back too. The board is talking about making the fences go straight across. That would make our neighbours yard 2 ft. longer than mine. I'm not ok with this. I pay the same condo fee's, sit on the same board and feel that the yards should be kept the same size. Other's on the board don't feel that way.
So would you want a bigger yard or would you settle for a smaller yard?

  • I would not settle, I would definatly make sure its kept equal, maybe say OK you wanna give me a smaller yard, then drop my fees down. simple as that. No I would have a fit

  • so you have a condo right....meaning that all you own is inside and not outside, right? i would say that it should be put up for a vote for the whole community to decide....that would be the best way i think.

  • Yes but that leaves me in the minority, on a board of 5, 2 of us live in houses that would have the smaller yard and the other one wants the straight line because she says it looks nicer.

  • i'm not talking about a vote with the board....a vote with all of the community (i'm assuming it's roughly equal)

  • The other houses would mostly benefit from bigger yards, I'm still in the minority if it went to everyone. In my strip of 7 I'm one if the 2 who would have a smaller yard.
    I spoke to my realestate agent and she assured me that it likely wouldn't matter if my yard was 2 ft smaller.
