What is a Sufficient fence?

The Act requires that the dividing fence you erect is a “sufficient fence”. You should first check whether your local government has prescribed in its local laws what a sufficient fence is. If there are local laws, the dividing fence you erect must comply with those laws. If there aren’t any local laws, the Act describes a sufficient fence as one that would ordinarily withstand the trespass of cattle or sheep. Alternatively a Magistrates Court may determine what is sufficient in each particular case. You may also agree with the adjoining landowner about the type of dividing fence you erect. The fence that you agree upon must comply with your local laws (if there are any).
