I live in a shared house, with my landlord in the basement suite. I brought home a propane barbecue and the following day I noticed it was missing from the back yard. I looked around a bit and noticed it was in the garage (which I don't have keys to). I contacted the landlord and after a day he replied saying that I wasn't allowed to have a barbecue, and he will be hiring a junk removal (at my expense) to pick it up if it isn't gone in less than 24 hours.
My lease says nothing about barbecues and no one ever said there was a rule against them. The landlord said I should have asked before getting one. I'm not sure how to reply to this, I guess "I shouldn't have asked, you should have told me".
Is it legal for my landlord to do this? If not, what exact laws is he breaking and what can I do? Practically speaking, what's the best course of action? It seems a shame to end a perfectly good relationship over a $80 bbq.
