Sound Off: Fence posts

A neighbor has a fence post line that runs across the length of three neighboring backyards. Rails are falling out of the slots, left on the ground and are rotting. There are even some in our yard. There’s no effort to fix or put them back in their post. It’s very unsightly to look at this every day. Who do we call to complain?

If it's on a property line, I would think that maintenance is shared between property owners - is that not true?

Not correct on the fence support siding issue. When building a fence on your property you can face pickets in either direction you choose.

in the old days: a fence on a property line - as you face the fence, you are responsible for the left half of the fence line. possibly you should be fixing the fence. try talking to your neighbor before going to the law.

I am not understanding this. Why did this person put up on fence on three other properties and part of a forth? Do they own all four houses? Maybe the fence could just be torn down and mulched.

"Who do we call to complain?"

Possibly, your neighbor. The one that owns the fence. You might even try to be neighborly and ask if there is a time that you could help him/her repair or remove the fence.
