“"The first issue to decide is who was responsible for maintaining the yard under the terms of the rental agreement or lease."

This is so true! Many times, landlords forget to mention to tenants their expectations when it comes to landscaping responsibilities. Always get everything in writing so this type of situation is unlikely to occur!

Good advice!

“First thing first. At the start of rent agreement, everything should be settled first so there will be no troubles whenever an accident or unexpected things happen and I do believe everything can be put into clear conversation and understanding.”

“security of 2200 kept for landscaping to a garden and additional 750 charged to the tenant on top of that all for landscaping this garden which needed weeding - which was offered to be done by the tenant - is that legal? not spelled out on lease other than lawn maintenance including mowing - any advice?”
