Around 15 years ago, a fence on the property line between my house and my (former) neighbor was replaced. But the new fence was installed a few inches over to my side. Five years ago, the former neighbor sold the house to a new (current ) owner . unaware of the "new" fence being in the wrong place.
I want to tear down my house and the current fence and rebuild, and use this opportunity to move the fence to back to the correct location. I talked to the new neighbor about this, even assuring him that he would not have pay for the future new fence. But he called me a liar and threatened legal action If the future new fence is installed anywhere other than the current (incorrect) location. What should I do now? Would getting a surveyor help?
