After your conversation, which I hope goes well, drop you neighbour a note detailing your position. Then both of you have a record and some time in the future you may need it.

Have to say that if he unilaterally chopped off the posts he may be a difficult character to deal with. Much better so state your position now.

You mention you have lived there for 3yrs,
1.did you not have this boundary change pointed out to you at time of purchase.
2.have you not in this time spoken with your neighbour regarding these posts in the original boundary,
3.regarding the mention of your neighbour creosoting the back of the fence,it clearly shows he is concerned for its maintenance,and does`nt want to look at a deteriorating fence back.
4.Shame he did`nt ask you to move the fence,and bolt it his side of the concrete post`s,so you could have the view of the post`s.

5.If you insist the fence is yours and not a shared boundary,he may charge you for the maintenance he has done.

Be funny to see him try and charge for treating with creosote;

There are substitutes for creosote if you did`nt know,
Anyway,maybe the OP got the brand of treatment wrong?

I would suggest you photograph any remaining fence post stumps as a record of where the boundary is meant to be.

As said earlier, put your 'points agreed' from any conversations in writing; if it ends up going legal, this will make denial much more difficult.

Check your house insurance policy (& credit cards) to see if you have legal expenses cover. This will save you many thousands of pounds, if your neighbours force you to go legal.

To be honest, 8 inches is not worth arguing about, & would be difficult to fight in legal terms. As long as the fence line looks in line with the building etc, I would leave as is. Talk to your neighbour if you can & express your concerns re selling, this could just as well cause the same selling issues, were your neighbour to sell.

Its a shame that people don't ask first, but rather go ahead & do what they often know is 'pushing it'. This is done to force you to deal with the issue, if you dare.
