These properties boarder one another the business has a stockade fence up, but it is in real bad shape, we have done what we can to keep this fence up. At this point it is tilting and we are going into hurricane season, a strong wind will surely take this fence down. We do not want people in there parking area to have access to our back yard. Does a business whos property boarders a residents property by law have to put up a fence?
I advise you to speak with a local zoning/real estate attorney to better ascertain your options.
Best of luck.
The foregoing discussion does not establish an attorney-client relationship, is qualified by the limited facts presented above, and should not be relied upon as legal advice. To obtain definitive legal advice upon which one can rely necessitates retaining an attorney who is qualified in this particular area of the law. Any comments are merely suggestions for you to think about in discussing your situation with your local attorney.
You local codes can give you guidance in this area. I would be surprised if local zoning prohibited you from erecting the fence you want to be present. Not as cheap as if they do it rather than you, but you have more say as to design, height, color, etc. if it is your fence, not their fence.
