A tenant it is your responsibility to keep your garden in good order, so as not to cause a nuisance or pose a health and safety or fire risk.
Your tenancy agreement will tell you that you must take reasonable care to make sure that any outbuilding, yard or garden you have is kept clean and free from rubbish. You must look after the garden and keep any trees, bushes, hedges or grass at a reasonable height or size. You must get our permission first before you plant any trees.
Gardens should be:
- Free from litter and other household rubbish
- Free from items that pose a health and safety risk
- Free from items that pose a fire safety risk
- Free from pet fouling
- Not overgrown.
Hedges that are the responsibility of tenants should be regularly trimmed and should not extend past their boundaries.
