I am about a week away from closing on this REO home. A couple days ago while I was showing a tree I wished to have removed, the neighbor next door approached me and wished to know if I am the new owner, I said I hope to be in about a week, she then informed me that they had to put up a new fence (which is on the boundary) and believes I should go in on half the cost of the fence. The new fence they put up is between my property and theirs. The cost is about $5000 for my share.I don't have a problem going in on a fence with my neighbors, but I'm just so caught off guard at the moment I'm not sure what to do. I still need to fix up the house I'm buying!How do I handle this? I'm a first time home-buyer and a bit non-plussed.
