Re: Bye Bye Garden..

Definitely terrible.  I agree, I'd double check the contract, and even  seek 
advice from a lawyer regarding renters rights especially if he gives you  
problems about taking items out of the yard that you purchased.  
According to renters rights and law (at least here in Texas) as long as you  
leave the property in the same condition it was when you moved in, then you 
are  within your rights to take the plants, furniture, etc. out that you  
purchased.  I would definitely do this, especially if you are moving.   Heck I moved 
plants from Texas to California and back again, when we  moved.  
You are much better off with a different place.  If this is his  attitude 
now, who knows what might come next.
Good luck.

We got a  very unpleasant surprise today. To backtrack a bit, our landlord 
sold our  house (two family brownstone) to his son, who moved in downstairs. 
We knew  him and all so it didn't seem like a big deal. That is until he told 
us  today we are no longer allowed any use of the front or backyard. Our  
grill, patio set, and all our outdoor plants have to go. To quote him  ("It's 
MY house, and MY yard. You just rent the second floor." ). We're  unhappy to 
say the least. The grill and patio set are new and since we  have to get rid 
of them that's $300 down the drain. The plants (including  three rose bushes) 
probably cost me a hundred or so at least. Now the  previous landlord (his 
father) had no problem with any of it, and this one  has been around since 
April and just now decided to tell us. He said it  "slipped his mind". Right. 
He saw me planting, saw the grill and table set  up, and never said a word. 
We're not dirty, messy people. When we moved in  the front yard was bare and 
pretty ugly, and we're always complimented on  how nice we kept things, 
inside and out.

Needless to say we are  looking for a new place to live. Thank goodness we 
are in a position to do  so. We refuse to be treated like second class 
citizens and made to feel  unwelcome in our own home.  Fine, he's the 
landlord, but our rent  helps pay the mortgage and frankly after 5 years of 
paying rent on time  and being in their words "perfect tenants" we deserve 
better  treatment.

I know things could be worse but boy are we pissed. All that  money wasted!
