Notice to Fence Notice

Victoria

Sending a notice - what are my options ?

Option 1

You can create your own fencing notice using this example as long as you include the relevant information listed in the 1968 fences act which was updated in 2014.

Option 2

Some Fencing companies serve fencing notices for free and collect  the payment for the fence from each property owner involved.

Option 3

The Dispute Settlement Centre of Victoria has put together 6 different types of fencing notices.

Create your own notice that you can copy and modify to suit your needs, just make sure you include the relevant items in the act that relate to your fencing issues including section 13. It is recommended that everyone serving a fencing notice read the act before serving a notice.
