Fence dispute with a neighbor advice.

About three months ago we bought another house in Atascocita, and we got lucky we ended up with good neighbors on either side, but not so with one on the back, a portion of the fence on their side is all broken, it had a couple of boards broken when we moved in, but between their dog and mine those two morphed into at least six broken ones.

Almost two months ago I was working in the back yard when I noticed the girl that lives there, I was polite when I asked her about the fence and I offered to get some boards to get it fixed but she told me to talk to her boyfriend.

Next day I stopped at their house but no one was home, so I left a note taped to their door with my name and number and again offering help in fixing it.

TWO weeks passed by and no response, so I stopped by again and he was home, I told him and he just said that he already had the material to fix it and he was going to to do in the weekend. BTW he wasn't aggressive or anything, but he was very dismissive, live he was getting a BJ and wanted to get back to it or something, all in all, I didn't like his demeanor, I must add.

Through HCAD I found out some company with a very cryptic name owns the property and is based in San Fran CAULIFORNEA, and googling the company I came up with nothing, no phone number or email address.

I called the HOA (which by the way, has a lot of complains) and they told me they can't help with this situation, And straight off the bat, without me asking for it, told me they cannot provide me with the company's number.

Today I will send a certified letter to the company that owns the property, but is there any other recourse on my side?

Please keep in mind, I was never aggressive or obnoxious with these people, I even offered help so I can't understand why they won't even try to fix their fence.

Build your own fence up against their fence

Just fix up your side. If it's the type of fence that has sections alternating per side then just fill in the voids on your side to make it a solid fence for you. Easier to trim the grass too.

This is easy, it's a rental and he (current tenant) doesn't give two ts about the fence. You are better off letting him know because of your dogs that if it's not fixed in ___ time that you are going to do it yourself. When time comes and it's not fixed then do it yourself and enjoy the neighbors that care..

Build a new fence on your side. You'll only see the pretty new fence and he'll still have the piece of fence to look at every day. It doesn't sound like you'll get much out of the tenants. . .handle it yourself and move on with your day.

I can believe the HOA just flat out would not do anything. We have "neighbor friendly" fences...half myside, half their side. Its in our deed restrictions we have to keep our side up. My back fence faces a road so its all mine to fix.

Check your deed restrictions and contact HOA again. I believe its pretty standard you have to keep your fence up. But the certified letter to the Lease Company is good too. Give them 10 days from receipt of letter to fix ... if they dont get the materials, fix it yourself, bill them for materials and time. If they dont pay take them to small claims court...and hit them for what they owe plus a days work you had to take off. A $10 fence repair just got up to around $500-600 bucks lol

Im with these guys. Either just fix the existing fence up yourself, or build new inside of the existing fence on your property line. They are renters, so they wont have anything invested in the fence, and I doubt an out of state holding company will care if the HOA isnt pushing.
Just do it your way and move on. You know what they say about fencing making good neighbors, right?

A lot of HOAs only care about what can be seen from the street

I have them same situation with a neighbor on the back side of yard. I ended up building a fence up against the one the refused to split with me. They were always looking thru while we would be outside and the fence was in bad shape, so I took old plywood from my shop and nailed to old fence, then built the new one up to it so they couldn't see thru and went 8' up instead of the 6' original height. So if the lazy ever removes his crappy fence he has more cleaning up to do. Its been 1.5 years now and its still there.

Some not all....

Id file it with the HOA and set up an appointment to come out and meet with you to look at it as being not up to code. Then they can have a letter sent to the owner, then the letter from the attourney

Had the same problem with the rental house one one side. The solution was building my own fence.

We have loser neighbors to the rear and a vacant house to the left. The vacant one is owned but not lived in for the fast few years. No idea why. I just built the fence myself without asking for from the two sides we have neighbors
