Fence Viewer

The Township of South Stormont appoints a minimum of three (3) fence viewers by by-law to settle disputes where a property owner desires a new fence on the boundary line or when a property owner wishes to repair an existing fence. The Fence Viewers will examine the premises and, if required, by either adjoining owner, will hear evidence and may examine the owners and the witnesses under oath. A decision will then be made as to the style, location and cost sharing between the neighbours. Should either party not be satisfied, an appeal process can be undertaken pursuant to the Line Fences Act.
