Fencing Information and Disputes

From 22 September 2014, the Fences Amendment Act 2014 introduced a number of changes to the Fences Act 1968. If you are a property owner, these new changes mean that you and your neighbour have equal responsibility for the dividing fence on your land.

The Fences Act contains rules about who pays for a dividing fence, the type of fence to be built, notices that neighbours need to give one another and how to resolve disputes that come up when discussing fencing works with your neighbour. If you encounter a dispute with your neighbour over the construction or replacement of your fence, you will need to serve your neighbour with a “Notice To Fence”.
This Notice to Fence is a legal document that formally advises your neighbour that they have one month in which to respond otherwise legal proceedings in the Magistrates court will be initiated.

Swimming Pool and Spa Barriers

If you are installing a new pool/spa In Victoria, the safety barriers are subject to strict building requirements under the Building Regulations 2006 (the Regulations). The Regulations also contain ongoing legal obligations for pool and spa owners to maintain their safety barriers at all times.

Compliance with the Regulations improves safety outcomes. Non-compliance, for any reason, can increase the risk of drowning and lead to prosecution by the VBA or local councils. Any home-owner who engages in building a pool or spa and associated safety barriers must familiarise themselves with the Regulations.

If you are replacing an old existing pool/spa safety barrier with a new barrier for a spa or swimming pool built before 1 May 2010, you will need to comply with the current Regulations and this work will require a building permit.

The Victorian Building Association has created a swimming pools, spas and their safety barriers checklist to advise home-owners of their obligations, before, during and after construction.

Mick, from our first phone call I felt confident that you knew your business and had the expertise to carry out the job well. At all times you were realistic about timelines. The fence was erected by Darron who was strong, efficient and helpful. Many thanks and very happy to recommend your work.

We recently had a bout of really strong winds, which sadly took out our whole side fence - and the gate that closed it off to the side of the house.

I hired Mick and the team to build a new custom gate for the job.

He came out to the site next day to measure and had the gate frame welded and cladded in fence palings that same day.

I hired Mick and the team to build a new custom gate for the job.

He came out to the site next day to measure and had the gate frame welded and cladded in fence palings that same day. Plus installed! I didn't think such a turnaround could be possible - but he did, and we now have a great quality bespoke gate!

Mick & his team were reliable and installed first class gates for a competitive price in time for Xmas. Highly recommended.

Hi Mick,

"Renae Bullen,
I would just like to express our appreciation to Mick at Mick’s Fencing and Gates.
From the first visit to assess the damage, to the completion of the job, we cannot speak more highly of the professional manner in which the repairs were carried out.
It was not easy the repair the lacework, but it looks as good as new.
many thanks,
Barry and Rosemarie Emmerson"

Great work 😊

Thank you Mick and your team for such an amazing job. We are so happy with your eye for detail and the quality of our new fence and automatic gate. Love it!

Mornington   

Mick understood from the start what we wanted and never once said "we can't do that". When you want something a little different it was great to hear a tradesman embrace the idea and then produce the perfect product. Mick was very easy to deal with and completed the job in quick time.
