This is a question thats answer depends on where the fence is ie.

Heritage listed area, side vs rear fences etc.

I have been approached by my neighbour to contribute to half of our shared boundary fence. Am I required to pay half of any type of fence?

The Fences Act (VIC) states that ‘adjoining owners are liable to contribute in equal proportions to the carrying out of fencing work in respect of a dividing fence of a standard not greater than the standard for a sufficient dividing fence’ – Click here to view the Victoria Fences Act 2014 Amendment

What if my neighbour wants a fence over and above what is deemed a standard for a sufficient dividing fence?

You are only required to contribute up to the cost of half of what is deemed the cost of a standard fence. If your neighbour wishes to erect a fence over and above this, they are responsible for the extra cost associated with that fence – Refer to the Victoria Fences Act for further details – Click here to view the Victoria Fences Act 2014 Amendment
