One thought on “Nevada is a “fence out” state

  1. I live in a H.O.A. in a rural area of Nevada ,my property backs up to a county road .The H.O.A says they own the fence that is on the property line dividing the County road and my property and they claim that they can repair the fence and charge me for the repairs .
