Dividing fences are regulated by the Dividing Fences Act 1991. This Act prescribes the responsibilities of parties towards the maintenance and upkeep of dividing fences and the process of seeking orders pertaining to a dividing fence.

Disputes about fences often concern the intention of a party to demolish and construct a new fence and the location of such fence. If the parties are unable to reach an agreement within a specified timeframe, an application can be made to the Local Court seeking orders.

Navado has litigation and dispute resolution experience which may assist you in settling your dispute with a potentially agreeable outcome and with a mind to cost reduction. At Navado we focus on offering you an efficient and stress free settlement, and will consider a wide range of options to assist you in settling your dispute.

If you require assistance with a dividing fence dispute, you may wish to contact our Sydney CBD Head Office in order to arrange an appointment to meet with a Solicitor from our team. Alternatively, we are able to arrange a time for you to see one of our Neighbourhood Disputes and Trees solicitors at one of our conveniently located branch offices.
