There are no regulations to prevent property owners from installing separate fences on a common property line. This practice is not recommended since, as you stated, it makes it difficult for maintenance of the fences, maintenance of vegetation that grows between them and can negatively effect drainage between lots.
Shared fences are typically installed by the first completed home. It is important to have cooperation between neighbors before connecting to an existing fence that may not be on your side of the property line. You could remove your fence, but I recommend discussing the situation with your neighbor before doing so.
