What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? New York
My new neighbor claims that an existing fence is 2 feet from the property line at one end, favoring my property. He want to demolish the fence and erect another, moving it 2 feet to my side. According to my own survey, performed when we moved in 16 years ago, the fence was erected 1'9" onto his property. But moving the fence will force the removal of much of the shrubbery along that line on my side, most of which was there when we bought the house. It will also destroly a gate we have which ties into the existing fence. What are our rights in this matter? We live in Queens County, NYC. Thank you.
