Backyard Additions: Who to Call When Cary Tenants Go Rogue

Cary Rental Property with a Firepit Installed in the BackyardTenants of single-family rental homes oftentimes desire a charming home they can luxuriate in throughout the year with the company of family or friends. Outside spaces are a key aspect of the home, and tenants may want to include items to their Cary rental home’s yard to aid them to have a good time in it the way they want to.

Same as with the home’s interior, furnishing ornamental touches and non-permanent décor is the ideal procedure for tenants to execute. 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 concern is that not all lessees may cease at just beautifying an outdoor space with throw pillows. Several tenants may try to put up things 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, moreover, give it a shot to bring about additional permanent changes without authorization, namely 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 view it as a small difference between integrating a freestanding barbeque grill to the patio and building one in the yard. Therefore, tenants must be straightforwardly informed about what they can and cannot add to their yard. In like manner, the conditions of their lease agreement should bluntly interpret the repercussions of selecting to bring about unauthorized changes and additions.
