A complainant who has rebuilt or repaired a deficient fence as provided in section 47-26-07 may recover, from either the owner or the occupant of the land where the fence was
deficient, the value of repairing or rebuilding the same and the fees of the fence
1. The rebuilt or repaired fence has been adjudged sufficient by two or more of the
township supervisors; and
2. The fence viewers have executed a certificate stating the value of repairing or
rebuilding the fence and the amount of their fees.
Before bringing suit for such sum, however, the complainant shall make demand upon
the owner or occupant who shall have one month after such demand within which to make
such payment. If suit is commenced to recover such amount, the claimant shall recover interest
upon the total sum stated in the certificate at the rate of one percent per month.
