We recently rented a house and the day we moved in we were told the neighbor will do the yard work and take care of the home. Also in the lease the landlord should give 24 hour notice before appearance but nothing about this neighbor we didn't know about. Nowhere in the lease does it say someone would do the yard work.
The problem is the neighbor has a couple domestic abuse charges in his past and he stays in the yard for hours looking in windows and snooping. No exaggeration - the first two weeks we moved in, the neighbor was in the yard at least 5 hours a day every day. We look out the window and the neighbor and some older man just standing outside looking at the house. The neighbor is a really large man about 6'5" and very creepy. We are always on edge and don't feel safe having him in the yard constantly.
We put up cameras to video tape the stalking. We have our own mower and can take care of the yard ourselves, but the landlord refuses and defends the neighbors actions. There is always a new excuse to have the neighbor enter the yard. Gutters, fertilizer, snow removal, always a new excuse. Always in the yard. We can't even go outside and we can do these things ourselves. Is there anything that can be done? We don't feel private or safe.
