The Fence Law – Since Georgia doesn’t have a law about fences, anything dealing with them will fall under property damage, easements, nuisance, and trespassing. The law focuses more so on the fence installation. If a fence is put up on the property line itself then both parties have to agree to its establishment and whether or not the cost will be split. If you don’t want to involve your neighbor, then your best bet is to put the fence a foot or two inside your property line. This gives room, not only for installation, but in case there needs to be maintenance down the line.
