Question by  Brad (34)

What are standard laws regarding installing a fence on my property?

I live in Philadelphia, and would like to put up a fence between my neighbor and myself. What do I need to know about regulations and laws?

Visit town-hall and get a permit prior to putting up your fence. Standard law dictates that the property line is respected. Local ordinances dictate height restrictions, so obey them.
