  2. Answered . No, your neighbor needs your permission.

  3. Answered . Your neighbor is going to need your permission to enter onto your property to paint the fence.

    Before you begin a confrontation, you will want to make sure where your boundary line is located. Sometimes landowners build their fences a couple of feet on their own property so that they can maintain the fence without a trespass occurring.
