Outdoor Fence Door Alternatives

One of the houses we share the fence with is basically abandoned. There's a legal fight between the family and it's been unlived for for 2 years. The fence we share w/ the home is very old, 35 years. We have asked about getting a new fence but since the property is in court, nothing can happen.

So recently, the fence door we have is on it's last legs. The nails and screws that hold it together are almost all off and it's hanging by a string literally.

I'd like to get a new fence door but it would be a waste of money since the fence it should be nailed to is dryrotted and not enough to hold screws or nails.

Are there any alternatives I could do to an outdoor fence door with the situation I am in?

Sounds like all you need is a new post next to their old fence... which would be entirely on your property. The opening could be reinforced with an overhead spreader to keep the opening plumb and parallel.
