A MAN whose neighbour put up a brand new fence right in front of his has ended up having the last laugh.
The video was uploaded on TikTok by a user who posts under the name Alex McCormick.
Alex is said to have had a dispute with a “petty” neighbour which resulted in them putting up a new fence – but found a way to come out on top.
The footage starts by showing his neighbour’s new fence accompanied with the words “how to get a new fence for free”.
As the camera pans away from the new panels, viewers can see an old discoloured fence lying on the ground in his garden.
And Alex reveals that he has discovered another easy life hack in just three simple steps.
He said: “Have your petty neighbour build a new fence directly against yours.”
He then follows this by saying: “Tear out your old fence. Profit?”
It is unclear what exactly caused the neighbour dispute and who is in the wrong.
However, one thing we can be sure of is that Alex’s method of getting a brand new fence is by thinking outside the box.
Neighbour disputes over fences can be common, but we previously told how there are three times you can’t complain if the person next door wants to build an extension.
But if they do build a fence on your side of the property line without permission there are options to tackle this if a neighbourly chat doesn’t work.
