Fence Viewers


The Fence Viewers will follow the guidelines of the Line Fences Act and provide resolutions to disputes between owners of adjourning properties.

Under the Act, three fence-viewers are required to be present at a viewing, and they are only authorized to address one or both of the following issues:

  • the apportionment of responsibility for the fencing work between the two adjoining owners
  • the description of the fence that is to be constructed or reconstructed on the boundary line, including the materials to be used

After the viewing, the fence-viewers issue an award and allocate the costs of the proceeding between the two owners.
