We are fortunate to have James Anton, Esq. speaking on the "CA Good Neighbor Fence Act".  This law affects our practice directly and will be critical knowledge.

MEETING TOPIC: Adjoining landowners are now statutorily equally responsible for shared fences and boundary fences pursuant to California Civil Code Section 841 which took effect January 1, 2014. Landowners who desire to replace an existing common boundary fence, must give each affected adjoining landowner written statutory notice of an intent to incur costs for a common boundary fence. The statutory "Notice of Intent" must including specific language and wording to become effective under the new law. A landowner who wishes to repair or replace a fence will have to sue to enforce the statutory presumption if adjoining neighbors object. Objecting landowners have a right to dispute the new statutory obligations, but the burden of proof is on the objecting neighbors. The presentation will explain how the new law applies, the applicable form and timing of the statutory notice, the presumption and methods of resolution.
