I have been renting for 5 years in the same Triplex in south Florida. I have a month to month least in which it states the “lawn maintenance” will be maintained by the landlord. Originally my landlord paid another company take care of the yard. The company started rarely showing up so my landlord fired them and got some friend to do our lawn. The man only came occasionally and continually broke stuff and left the lawn a mess. Then that man disappeared. We decided to buy are own equipment and take care of the lawn ourselves for over the last year. Do we have any right to ask a small amount be deducted off our rent for regular lawn maintenance?
Maybe, but probaly not. You can sue.
