Me and a friend went to see breaking dawn last night and while we were there DH texts me to tell me the fence fell over, well part of it. We have a dog and our neighbors have dogs so now I have to take my dog out to the bathroom on a leash. Ugh. Not sure who is supposed to fix it either. don't know who's fence it is.

Typically whoever has the posts on the inside is who put the fence up

It's theirs! If it is built, whatever side has the joints is the one who built it!

that's what I thought too but dh thought I was crazy when I said that. lol

It's been leaning into our yard for MONTHS and they've made no effort to fix it. I'm doubting that they are going to fix it anytime soon.

 Ha, we have always built ours so the finished side face into the yard for our enjoyment except in the front we finished both sides. I would talk to your neighbors about sharing the cost to replace it.

It is yours. The finished side the one that has the screws in it is on your side. Who ever originally put it up would of had to be on your property side to put the boards up.

Oh no! That's frustrating!! We'd be in the same situation if anything happened to the fence between us and our neighbor. The fence was here when we moved in AND when he moved in, so I don't suppose there's any way to know who's it is for sure.

Wrong.. My neighbor put this sort of fence up and the flat side is on my side.. But atleast I know that if it fell, he would fix it!

Well I know the fences we have put up the nice finished side is on ours. I don't want to look at ugly pressure treated lumber.
