I wanted to let you know that I've been thinking of installing a fence between our properties. Because this will dramatically change the way both our properties look, I wanted to let you know I have been considering it. What I have in mind is a <description> approximately <feet> feet tall. While there's no reason I can't go ahead and get started on the fence, I wanted to see if you had any input. After all, you'll have to look at the fence, too. If there's something particular you'd like done with the fence, like a gate or return onto your property, I'd be more than happy to discuss that with you. I only ask that, if what you want adds substantially to the cost of the fence, you agree to share in the cost with me.
With your permission, I'll have the fence installed directly down the property line. If you object to the fence, however, I'll make sure that the contractor builds the fence on my side of the property line only.
Please let me know your thoughts on this. I look forward to hearing from you.
