Fence By-law

The Town of Milton's Fence Apportionment By-law #97-2005 provides you with guidelines when constructing, repairing and maintaining a division fence.
Before beginning construction, speak with your neighbor(s) to come to an agreement on how the cost will be divided. If an agreement is made between the adjoining neighbor(s) construction may begin.

If you cannot reach a mutual agreement, then you may equally divide the cost of a basic fence after serving your neighbor with a Notice of Intent and all supporting documents.

For complete details on what to include in the Notice of Intent, see By-law #97-2005.

Please note that the Town of Milton does not enforce this by-law.
