Fence Issues with Neighbour

So I am having issues with my neighbour. Back in September/October, our neighbour tore down his house to build a new one. Along with it, half our fence. We took pics and what not. However, then it started to slide, so he had to put some temporary shoring up there using fencing.

Fast foward to Jan. It is about 4-5 months now, and the guy has backfilled it to original grade. However, he is still not cooperating and it appears he wants to push the fence further into our property.

This fence goes around our house, and was there before we moved in. It is our fence. I'm getting tired of this bullshit, and will be yelling at him pretty soon. I wanna get this shit underway. His house is up, jsut the interior stuff to do. He had no right to bring that fence down in the first place. And now he is acting like he can put it up anytime.

Property is in Surrey. Any suggestions. I wanna bring this to a lawyer/small claims court.

Yeah, pretty much the only way to go is to grab those property lines.Then it's really just a matter of reasoning with him

Go to city hall and find out the where the lot lines are. There should be markers at the corners of the property to.

You can probably call the Building Department and they may be able to point you in a better direction.

I don't really understand what the problem is? The neighbor destroyed your fence and is refusing to replace it? Get the police involved as this is techinally vandalism.

It depends on whose side of the property line the fence was on. If the fence was on the OP's side of the property then yes. However, if it was on the neighbor's land, then legally they can do whatever they want with it.

To the OP, if the neighbor has a pool or any sizable puddle of water (read: pond, etc) then legally he needs to have a fence surrounding his property at all times. If this is the case, you can definitely get things moving by going to the bylaw office as it's illegal to leave something like that unprotected.

the inspector would have more of an effect. That way he knows he has to be careful.
