Fence Ordinances in Novi Michigan

Below is a brief overview of the fence ordinances for Novi Michigan. This is not a complete or definite list and should never be used in support of a dispute. Click here to review the complete document of codes and ordinances regarding fences in Novi.

Design & Height Requirements

The city of Novi is easy going when it comes to fences. You are allowed to install just about any common type of fence on the market such as vinyl, wood, chain link, and aluminum fences. The maximum height allowed for fences in Novi is 6 feet tall.

While the city does not have a fence permit, we do recommend making sure your Home Owner’s Association is okay with the new proposed fence project. Some will require certain types of fencing while others are have no requirements at all.

Location Requirements

Fences installed on residential properties in Novi may be installed around the entire backyard and along the sides of the home, but cannot extend beyond the front corners of the home. The only exception to this is if the frontage setback of your property extends beyond the front corners of the house (sometimes this will happen with large lots or corner lots).

All fences must be installed within your property and homeowners are required to verify the location of their property lines as the city of Novi does not intervene with property line disputes. We can recommend a survey company that you may hire but we do not guarantee property lines. Sometimes, a city will have a survey on file or if it is a newer home we recommend getting in contact with the builder to see if they have it on file.
