Hubby asked me to get some feedback on this situation. We paid to have a good sturdy fence built down our south property line. The next door neighbor was all for it and agreed to pay half. Of course, he never spoke to us again. Now he's lost the place and yesterday a couple came to look at it. I went out and talked to them a little while and they indicated that they had a couple ponies and would be fencing in the rest of the property. They intend to use our fence to connect their fence to and hubby is hesitant about that. What are our rights? Should they pay to use the fence, or is it theirs to use since it existed when they bought the place? Are they responsible for maintenance if they connect to it? They were concerned about their ponies going under the fence where the pond is normally (it tends to dry up a lot in the summer) and were asking if we would fix it. I just don't know who is responsible for what or if there are laws in Mississippi that govern such things as shared fences. HELP!!!
