We live in the middle level of a three family home. Recently, I came home to discover a the large tree was cut down in our backyard. We were not notified at all. To clarify, our landlord did not enter our apartment, and the backyard is shared amongst the three apartments. I realize this may not be a reason to seek legal action, but I am curious if he was allowed to do that, as I really liked the tree since it was seen from our bedroom window. It is worth mentioning that the landlords mother lives in the apartment on the first floor, so him visiting the property unannounced is not unusual. He also is responsible for mowing the lawn, shoveling, ect. so maybe tree removal is part of that?
He may perform any landscaping or tree removal on the property, unless your written agreement with him states otherwise, as long as it does not endanger the health of the tenants.
