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.

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