Can planting be placed right next to a neighbors fence?

If the plants are on your property they may be planted along your neighbors fence. However, climbing plants that will grow over the fence cannot be planted along your neighbors fence. Caveat: Make sure your neighbor has not installed the fence "inside" their property line so it lies a short distance FROM the property line. That is the practice in some areas and is required by the city ordinances in some areas. In that case, the land along the fence would belong to your neighbor. You need to determine where the property line is located and not assume the fence is on the property line.

Your neighbor has overgrown tree and bushes over property line?

You can clip and trim the trees and bushes on your side of the property line. You cannot go in your neighbors yard. Make sure you know where the property line is by locating pins or having it surveyed.

What is encroachment on property?

An encroachment is an infringement on someone else's rights or intrusion on another person's property. It is most often used when describing real property such as the corner of an neighbor's garage that extends over the property line or a driveway that gradually grew over the property line and is now partly on your neighbor's land. Encroachments are often caused by surveyor error in placing the pins marking the boundaries in a subdivision and the party who built their swimming pool partly on their neighbor's land was not at fault.

Can you trim hedges from neighbor's property that extend over property line and interfere with your property?

At common law and in most jurisdictions you have the right to trim any branches that overhang your property. However, it must be done in such a way as to prevent any damage to the trees or shrubs. You should discuss it with your neighbor first.

A tree on my property line grows a branch that hangs over my neighbor's property breaks off during a heavy storm onto their property. Who is liable for the damage?

You are responsible, but your homeowner insurance should cover damage.

What if a tree hangs over your property line?

In most states, you have the right to cut any limbs or branches that hang over the property line. However, it is always best to work with your neighbor about the tree whenever possible (since you have to live next to that person). If your neighbor objects to you cutting limbs that hang over the line, be sure to see a real estate attorney before cutting to avoid violating your state's timber trespass laws.

Can you plant trees right on the property line?

With your neighbor's consent would be nice, otherwise you're trespassing and the neighbor could take action that could kill the trees. It's always best to put plantings in so that even when they grow they don't "encroach" over property lines, unless the neighbor agrees.

Can i trim my fence line?

Depends if the fence line IS the property division line, in which case both homeowners have to agree about the trimming. If whatever needs trimming is solely on your property you are allowed to do whatever it is you need to do, providing any homeowner association (if they exist) has rules for this.

Tree branch fell over neighbor's property Texas law?

It does not matter what state your in. No one is liable for an act of nature. Your neighbor is responsible for the portion on their property and you are responsible for the portion on your own property.

A fence that was on the neighbors property line for over 40 years fell down and you replaced it now the neighbor is challenging us what can you do?

It sounds like you have a strong adverse possession/mutual acquiescence claim to the fence as the property line. You need to contact a real estate attorney immediately to preserve your right to keep the fence line as the property line. Also see the Related Questions below.

Can a neighbor use the easement property that's over your boundary for personal plants?

The property still belongs to you. The easement means that you shouldn't be planting or putting anything permanent in there, as the city/town/community could come along and do what they wanted with it.
