hi, my name is ***** ***** i would be happy to help you with your question.
have you spoken to your landlord about the issue? if so, what was his response?
So because you are renting the trailer, the land and the trailer is technically the owner's and they can do whatever they see fit. You are not allowed to cut or pay to have the tree cut because it is not you property, it is the land owners.
If you feel the environment is unsafe, it sounds like you should discuss this with the new management and/or consider moving to another part of the park or elsewhere. Because you do not own the land the decision to remove the tree is beyond your control.
does that adequately answer your question? if not, i would be happy to answer further questions! if you are satisfied, i would greatly appreciate a positive rating! Thanks for using JA!
my apologies for the confusion. But that would not change my answer. Because the tree is on the "land" it is the land owners property to do with how he/she pleases. Let me double check to ensure there isnt a statute for negligent risk or some sort of potential harm.
if the tree is going to be removed, it would need to be paid for by the land owner and is not your responsibility. However, i would bet if you tried to compromise and help pay it, he or she would be more willing to remove the dangerous tree. Does that adequately answer your question? if not, i would be happy to answer further questions.
Let me look to see about the last question. I'll be back shortly with your answer!
Here is the statute: Neb. Rev. Stats §76-1419, §76-1425.
Also in Nebraska, all landlords must make all repairs and do whatever is necessary, after written or actual notice, to put and keep the premises in a fit and habitable condition
· Keep all common areas of the premises in a clean and safe condition.
I would argue that this is a common area and thus the landlord has a duty to keep it in a SAFE condition, this tree is unsafe. further, i would explain that in Nebraska all landlord's must maintain a habitable condition, and this tree is causing your fears and could easily make the trailer in-habitable.
Does that adequately answer your questions? If you have anymore, do not hesitate to ask i would be glad to help!
