Notice to Fence Notice

For use in Victoria Australia

A "Notice to Fence Notice" is a legal document that can be issued by you or a fencing company to your neighbour asking them to share the cost or repairs of fencing.

Sometimes the issue of this fence notice can cause a dispute so it is better to try the personal approach first.

Fence Notices should be sent by registered post to the neighbour.
