If I have a fence on my property, can my neighbor paint or do whatever he wants to it without my permission?
Question Details: My neighbor pressure washed my fence and I think that he is going to paint it but he never asked me. Is this legal?
No, if the fence is on your property, he cannot paint it any more than he could paint your house, your garage, your shed, your deck, etc. A fence on your property is 100% your property, and no one else has the right to make any changes to it; if he does, you could sue him for the cost to restore it, if you wanted.
If the fence is on your property then your neighbor has no right to paint it or any of your other property for that matter). If he does paint it, then you can sue in small claims court for the cost to retore it to its previous condition or possibly even replace it if it can't be restored.
