Builder Finally Replaces Woman's Fence

One morning, Victoria Pritchett says she woke up and her back yard was a disaster!

"My fence was removed and my yard was torn up."

Victoria says the company (Glaser and Son) building new homes in her Cincinnati neighborhood, ripped down her chain-length fence and rolled it up into her yard with out asking.

"No. No permission," she told FOX 19 Consumer Reporter Tom Sussi.

The single mother owns dogs and operates a day care center. And says she badly needs a fenced-in yard.

"That's the reason I purchased this house. It had a fence."

Victoria says the company apologized and promised to fix her yard and put up a new fence. That was November of 2002! All the company has done is put up a plastic temporary fence.

Tired of waiting, Victoria called FOX 19. "All I want is my fence."

FOX 19 called the builder. And within a few days, Glaser and Son took care of the problem. Victoria has a brand new privacy fence.

"I'm very happy with it," she said. "About time," asks Sussi. "About time," she said.

As for the rest of Victoria's fence along the side of her home, that will be installed once rails are placed along a retaining wall near the sidewalk, which will take a few weeks.

"I'm ok with that," said Victoria.
