A HOMEOWNER who got petty revenge after their neighbour refused to pay up for a fence has left viewers divided.
The shocking video was titled “when your neighbour refuses to pay their share of the fence.”
Footage shows a fence at the bottom of a garden painted over in bright colours and large words.
The DIY painting on the shared fence by the disgruntled neighbour reads “private property do not touch”.
In the comments section, the original poster made some additional allegations regarding the fence row.
According to the TikTok creator, they claim that they only decorated after the neighbour declined to pay for the fence “for the second time”.
They wrote: “Hi hers is the near side with the small fence mine is the 6ft fence on my land so I decorated for her as she wouldn’t pay for the second time.”
However it is unclear whether the original claims are real with only the TikTok creator having put forward their version of events.
As always TikTok users were quick to weigh in on the discussion with their own opinions.
Many thought that that the original poster was in the wrong while others supported the TikToker.
One wrote: “Why should they pay if it isn’t theirs.”
While another said: “In the uk fences are very likely to be owned by one or the other and not shared.
“Check your deeds, if it’s your boundary then your liable I’m afraid.”
Meanwhile a third commenter wrote: “I’m sure that side is their responsibility.”
It comes as one resident was left fuming after claiming his neighbour’s fence is two-and-a-half inches onto his land – and was stunned when they blamed him.
Another set of neighbours were involved in a dispute that saw one of them lose £130,000 after suing her.
Liz Peck and her husband Adam were furious after neighbour Debbie Ranford constructed her extension inches too close to their £1.5m home in south east London.
They took her to court but were criticised by a judge for using a “sledgehammer to crack a nut” over the “very minor” minor boundary issue last year.
