I have a tenant that is moving out after his second lease with us and he has planted a tree of unknown type within three feet of the home. He has provided notice of leaving and I'd like to be certain that he should be responsible for removing it if there is any possibility that it will compromise the slab foundation plumbing or building structure.
A secondary question is there are three palm trees that he had planted during his original stay with us over 10 years ago, not this current lease. Would he still be responsible for removing them or have I inherited this after he had originally moved out?
ATM I believe I am responsible for his original trees but he would be responsible for the new trees planted at the start of his current lease.
