Yes, they do. Responding to a long dead thread is useless and wastes everyone's time. The OP has long gone so your answer is useless. IF someone else has a similar issue they should start their own thread.


If this forum actually had a moderator or administrator this thread would be locked.

Personally, I can't believe you were stupid enough to add to a 4 year old thread.

smh.

Re: weed eating/grass trimming on neighbors side of fence

You will need to look at the survey and see who owns the land. Usually, each owner should mow his or her own side of the fence. A judge likely is not going to order the neighbor to let you onto the neighbor's property to maintain his side of fence. Your situation might have different issues. Further, you can't stop someone from suing you. Therefore, contact an attorney to review your situation in detail.

He wants me to come into his yard and trim this area on a regular basis. When the fence was installed I had a permit from the city. The fencing company used a survey and installed the fence 2-4 inches inside my property. So I guess technically there may be 1-3 inches outside the fence that are still my property. I called city code and they told me I'd be trespassing if I entered the neighbors yard and there is no violation if the grass against the fence is not trimmed. Who should trim the grass against the neighbors side of the fence?

Thanks
If the 2 to 4" is actually your property, then you should trim it. You would not be trespassing since the neighbor ASKED you to come over and trim it. So much for taking your legal advice from city code inspectors.

Keeping good relations with a neighbor is always the best policy. So keep the grass trimmed. If you don't and he maintains it, eventually he will own those inches of your property by adverse possession.

So what is your neighbor going to do if you don't trim "his" side of the fence? Sue you for overgrown grass?

What nonsense. I'd ignore this demand.

I suggest you buy a weed whacker and a step ladder.
