Default Building a Fence in Binbrook

We had a fence built a couple of weeks ago and everyone around us was fine with everything that was going on, but now that we're trying to collect 3 of the 5 neighbours are giving us a hard time or out right refusing to give us the money for their portion. From what I understand, in Hamilton, a neighbour only has to pay 50% of a 4' chain link fence. From calling the city (which they are not helpfull at all), I understand that I have to collect the money myself or take them to small claims. Has anyone had to do this? What's involved? What's the $/foot that they charge?

We had the same problem with one neighbour here in brampton! But here if you approach them twice and they still refuse and send those requests to the city of brampton they will add the portion of their share on their property taxes and reinburse you!
Good luck but it may take awhile to get your money! Some neighbours are stubborn but all in all it isnt good for the overall makeup of your neighbourhood!

Not sure how things got done down there but here in Ottawa, we just had our fences built and there was no issue with the money. 4 of us got together and had a contractor coming in to take measurements and give quotes...if you want your fence built, you better pay up, if not see you later.

I think that's the way it should be done.
