We have a lovely big garden, but halfway down the lawn, it is divided by a large glass greenhouse.
DS is nearly walking and will soon want to play out in the garden. It is such an old fashioned greenhouse, that it is not made from 'safety glass' or perspex, just heavy normal glass on a metal frame.
Would it be reasonable to ask the landlord to remove it just because I am worried about it from a safety angle?
Our contract just says to 'maintain the lawn and garden'........I don't know how to maintain a rusty glass greenhouse. We don't use it, and it breaks up what could be a lovely big lawn & play area for DS.
You can ask but I don't think you have the right to insist. In your shoes I would ask his advice between two or three options (depending on what you are willing to do. If he could remove it, you remove it or you put a fence and gate up.
You can ask, but the landlord would be reasonable to refuse. The landlord could easily argue that you knew there was a greenhouse in the garden when you decided to rent it and the landlord may see the greenhouse as an asset to the house as many people would love a greenhouse in their garden.
I doubt that landlord would remove it - unless its old and had it and not very servicable. Im with the others who say that it could be a godsend to you if you want to grow your own veg and stuff - there will be loads of dangers everyehwere when your DS is walking, you just have to be vigilant and as smoeone else has suggested, fence it off.
no harm in asking but if your landlord is like mine it probably wont happen. I still have a large rotting wooden shed in my garden that they said would be removed and Im still trying to find out who has turned the bottom of my garden into a communal tip! The council say its the landlord responsiblity but the landlord says the land falls outside of the agreed boundary! I have fenced it off but with time the rubbish will push against the fence causing it to collappse! GRRRRRR
