TikTokker @unbewreathable has shared an anecdote with her fans about how her neighbour tried to steal a large portion of her garden by building a fence through it. She then went on to reveal what she did to avenge the rude neighbour.
TikTok user @unbewreathable explained how she politely asked the neighbour to move the new fence back to the property line.
However, they refused, despite essentially trespassing onto another person’s property.
This sparked a row between the two homeowners, until a stalemate was reached.
The TikTokker then decided to take matters into her own hands and took the fence down herself.

The video was shared with the caption: “My neighbour’s fence is on our property…we’ve asked them to partner with us to correct it…they refused…so here we are.”
Follow-up videos showed a significant amount of the garden had been taken over by the neighbour, with a new fence later installed along the original property lines.
The TikTokker continued: “The property lines are exactly where they are supposed to be.
“Those saying ‘oh I would’ve taken a free fence’, would you also take depreciation on your properties? Sometimes boundaries have to be established.”

Comments on the video were mixed, with some fans praising the woman and expressing shock at the neighbour’s selfishness.
One person wrote: “Normalise not allowing your neighbours to run over you for easing tension.”
Another commented: “If their fence stays there, they gain that property.”
One TikTok user said: “If they allow the neighbours to fence that property, it becomes their property. The one taking it down loses equity.”
One person wrote: “I can’t believe they had it that far over on your property.”
Another said: “I get that they wanted the fence straight for aesthetic reasons, but that was a lot of land in the back there that they tried to claim.”
One commenter praised the woman, saying: “You handled this with grace and it looks amazing.”
However, others believed the woman’s actions were a little over the top. One person said: “They are good neighbours. Wish I got a free fence.”
Another wrote: “People like you are so selfish and impossible to deal with.” One person added: “Oh, you’re a Karen [a term used to describe those who complain].”
