Disputes can also arise when it comes to erecting walls or fences that delineate properties. For example, if you want to build a bordering fence, is it your responsibility to maintain its integrity, even if that means trespassing on your neighbor’s property in order to do so? These are the kinds of questions that lead to boundary fence disputes.
