When one neighbour wants a fence put up and the other does not, but the neighbour is putting it up anyway, whose side gets the flat side?

In Windsor the bylaw is the good side (flat side) go's to the neighbour and if you have a pool its law so no one can climb over it.

Thank you for the question. Hope this helps, have a good day.

And I forgot, your fence 6 inches on your side of property line thin its legally your fence.

Not sure about your area.

Here in Montreal if you have no agreement with your neighbour you put on your side of property and you do what you want.

Check with city every town has there by laws.

Hello there,

If your neighbor is installing a fence at his cost then the flat side is normally facing out and is what everyone else will see, but I must mention do to the fact he is paying for it he could put it however he likes as long as he follows code for easement/property line and height.

I hope this answered your question!
