If my neighbor repaired a fence that was in my property due to water runoff can he later bill me for this?
Water runoff eroded the place where the fence was. The property manager called me to ask about resolving in which I told her to obtain a proposal. Instead of getting a proposal she completed the work but is now asking me to pay for it. The fence is on my land but I did not authorize the charges.

Yes. The law in Virginia (left over from farming days) is that both property owners are responsible for 50% of fence repair. Va. Code Ann. § 55-317
