I wish to re-erect a fence, buy my neighbour/s in the other unit/s have objected. What rights do I have? Can I erect a fence on my land?  – Philip, QLD

Most fences fall under the Dividing Fences Act in New South Wales (there is similar legislation in other states), so it’s best to refer directly to the legislation. The objection process can be complicated depending on where the fence (or proposed fence) is to be located.
