To find them, you may need to make appropriate requests, including a tenant`s question of the neighboring property about the location of the owner and clientele. If, after reasonable requests, you still cannot find the owner of the property next door, you can continue fencing work. But it is important to know that if you want the owner of the property next door to contribute financially to the fencing work and you have carried out the work without giving them a fencing announcement or obtaining their consent, then you need an order from the Magistrate`Court. [Present all counter-proposals with the same particularity as in the case of a fencing notification.] Disputes between neighbors over borders and fences can be very unpleasant.
