Better check with your local zoning to see if it's permited to do it.
Contact the other people and get written permission also.
But any type fence on someone elses property and you may end up having to take it down without going though the motions.

Beyond etiquette and whether permitted, you certainly need to make sure your addition and its weight can be supported by the existing structure.

I assume you want to do this for cosmetic reasons or some added privacy? Would it be possible to build a better and more accommodating new "good neighbor" fence shared by both of you?
