(1958) On appeal from judgment in injunction suit to prevent adjoining landowner from repairing certain portion of division fence, denying injunctive relief and attempting to designate portion of fence each party was to maintain, court held that as oral agreement of plaintiff with defendant's predecessor as to maintenance of division fence was not binding on defendant, the only method of determining rights was under this section and disapproved lower court's attempt to designate portions to be maintained by the parties. McNaughton v. Schaffer (A.), 314 S.W.2d 245.
