I am renting a house in N.W.Reno and my neighbor to the rear cut 14" off the top of the 6'2'' wood plank privacy fence. Now the neighbor can easily see over the fence, into our back yard and into the house through the sliding door and windows. The neighbor stated he would not fix the fence or add anything to give the privacy back. I advised our landlord and he stated the fence is directly on the property line. He also stated he would ask the neighbor to fix the fence but would not protest the issue if the neighbor resisted. We are in the middle of our lease, which brings me to the question. Even though I am renting, do I still have a reasonable expectation to privacy? And if I cannot get this resolved satisfactorily would losing the privacy be enough to get out of the lease agreement and move?
