Fence Viewers

You are here

Each Term of Office, the Town of Georgina Council appoints individuals to act as ‘Fenceviewers’.

When neighbours cannot agree on the construction, reconstruction or maintenance of a fence, the Line Fences Act, being a provincial law, governs the arbitration process if necessary. Three fence viewers will examine the land in question and hear submissions from the adjoining owners and/or their witnesses. All notices under the Act are sent out by the Clerk’s Office.
