Most of the fences around here are wrong, most we don't worry about, they seem to average out across the farm. I did remove one last year, it started correct at one end, but by the other end, was off by 100' to my disadvantage, and add in an extra 50 feet of trees, and it was significant, neighbor was agreeable. One is 16 feet to my disadvantage on one end only. Have one that has significant curves to it, all in my disadvantage. Gain some extra pasture in a few places from wrong fencelines, in conditions that aren't amenable to refencing most years. One neighbor was dead set convinced that she owned 50 feet of my property beyond the survey stakes, due to something a realtor had told her, not sure that was ever settled to her satisfaction. I have one that a previous owner surveyed and moved gaining a few acres, and the losing party is still bitter about it everytime it comes up. But mostly I am my own neighbor and I'm not too concerned about property lines, only really figure it out if a new fence is going up, just surprised that someone would build a new fence in the wrong place as in this case.
