Believe you mean privacy fence on the property line.
Consider who owns the property line?
Upon the dispute the person can split the fee of the survey
and take the dispute to court. The county survey is the
courts expert to the court as what is the correct boundary.
Offsets of property to a property line is usually a foot.
Again not clear if that is 6" on each side, or a foot on
either side. Clearance is so boundary can be maintained.
You can legally go on a person's property to maintain your
property if there is not other way to access.
If the limb overhangs the property line the property owner
has the right to trim back to the property line. If there is
no overhang and tree/limb falls over line individuals
insuance is responsible for removing tree limb up to the
propertly line. Each property owner is responsible back to
the line. Owner of tree is not responsible for fence since
other had right to trim back to line.
If limb/tree falls on other house then others insurance of
property is liable for not removing propertly line known
hazard if tree is dead. If tree is living and permits are
required to remove such; then act of god, let the insurance
carriers argue it out.
Fences make good neighbors, so share the privacy. If you
install it you get to have the pretty side!
