how far from property line to build fence?
Is there a law or piece of legal information that defines how far a fence should be to not be considered on the property line? For example, what if the fence is one millimeter from the property line (silly I know) but what about 6 inches, 12 inches, 24 inches etc. Is this defined anywhere or in property disputes does a judge just decide on a case by case basis depending on his mood and the weather, one time 1 inch and one time 24 inches?

What city do you live in? Do you live in a neighborhood that has an HOA?

Call the city codes department. They will advise you. You need a building permit for a fence where I live, and if you live in a flood plain you probably won't be able to build one.

There are LOTS of questions to ask when building a fence. Or are you saying you already have one that may be illegally built?
