Backyard Additions: Who to Call When Monterey Park Tenants Go Rogue

Monterey Park Rental Property with a Firepit Installed in the BackyardTenants of single-family rental homes regularly seek an attractive home they can love all year long with the company of family or friends. Open air, outdoor spaces are a very important detail of the home, and tenants may like to bring in personal articles to their Monterey Park rental home’s yard to help them to take pleasure in it the way they want to.

Equally, as with the home’s interior, assimilating cosmetic touches and non-permanent décor is the spot on approach for tenants to pull it off. Items such as patio furniture, potted plants or trees, and so on are both functional and in compliance with the terms of the lease.

The difficulty is that not all renters may leave it at merely beautifying an outdoor space with throw pillows. A lot of tenants may aim to add in pieces that are prohibited, such as a firepit. Even the small, freestanding firepits available at most home improvement stores present a serious risk, and many cities and counties have specific regulations regarding where and when they can be used.

Leaseholders may, in like manner, make an effort to create other permanent changes without permission, such as installing an awning or in-ground fire pit, adding a new path or walkway, or installing a new fence, pond, trees, bushes or perhaps even a shed or gazebo. They may perceive just a bit of difference between providing a freestanding barbeque grill to the patio and building one in the yard. As a result, tenants must be outrightly informed as to what they can and cannot add to their yard. Along with that, the conditions of their lease agreement should definitely specify the implications of choosing to bring on unauthorized changes and additions.
