A: If you initially agreed with your neighbor to only pay for the replacement of the window and not its installation, you're not legally obligated to cover installation costs.

However, if there was a mutual understanding or implied agreement that you'd cover the entire repair, including installation, then you may be obligated. It's essential to refer to any written or verbal agreements made at the time. If no clear agreement was reached, open communication with your neighbor is advised to clarify and resolve the matter.

In any potential dispute, having evidence of your agreement, whether through written correspondence or witnesses, can be beneficial. If you cannot come to an agreement, consider mediation or seeking legal counsel. Remember, clear communication often prevents misunderstandings and disputes.
