According to local code, no. We had a section of new fence installed.
Neighbouring house is rental -- that would have been "real
interesting"! We did ask similar questions of the fencing contractor
(thanks to prior threads in this newsgroup/conference). Contractor
took his metal detector, swept for the front yard marker; back
property line marker is still above ground. We actually gained a
little over a foot of property.

Whoever puts up the fence is responsible for it, as I understand
things, and according to local code. (You might want to check with
your local codes if you feel the need. Some of our's are available
on-line.) AFAIK most codes require fencing around a pool, and since
the pool is your neighbour's....
