Fence Facts

April 23, 1989

For several weeks now, Andy Lang has given misinformation regarding building codes in the Southern California area (in general) and Los Angeles in particular.

Regarding last week's Handyman Q&A column ("Discuss Fence With Your Neighbor"), permits are almost never required for fences, if one stops below the 6-foot height in rear and sides, and 30 inches at the front. A variance, without a conventional building permit is sufficient if those heights are exceeded.

Hope this information is helpful--before the building departments are flooded with requests for fence permits.
