In St. George, we often hear from code enforcement officers about yards being neglected, some yards being used for storage and other problems. We pass along the complaint to the tenant and they are responsible. If the problem isn’t handled quickly, a fine is imposed and the tenant has to pay it.
If you don’t know if you are responsible for yard maintenance, look at your lease. If you can’t find your copy of the lease, call us and we will email you a copy of it. It’s important for you to understand for which things you are responsible and to fulfill your responsibilities. If fines are imposed, you will be responsible to pay the fines. Be smart. Take care of the yard and you don’t have to worry about additional hassle or fines.
