We said, that we didn't feel the burden was on us as we would have to pay to remove our gate and replace is to match their new fence.
1) I don't see why YOU gate has to match THEIR fence. Period.

2) Since it's a "two sided" fence....now that they've decided to just take down the boards on their side, the issue should be resolved. Right? The contractor won't even have to take down the end post.

And even if you DO give permission for the end post that your gate is hitched-to, to be taken down and replaced. It's obvious that it should be clear to them that your gate has to be put back the way it was. Hanging plumb and square. And if it's damaged, it's on them to pay for it.

3) Your situation is one reason I never share fences. If that means two fences with the annoying 3 inch dead space between them so be it. I'll keep the weeds down. I want MY fence. Let the neighbor have his.

I know you said the developer put original fences ON the property line.
