Hello Julie my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Is there anything in the agreement which says that the garden must be in a particular state?
Ok - then no, unless it is in the agreement the Landlord can NOT insist on this.
Anything the Landlord wants to rely upon must be in the contract.
If it is not in the contract the Landlord can not make you have it in any particular state
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Human Rights does not apply as that is only for public bodies of which I assume your Landlord is not one.
Its hard how you can approach the Landlord because its possible they could give you notice to leave.Its all down to negotiation - just explain your views on nature and assured the Landlord if you leave you will restore the garden
Can I clarify anything for you?
Indeed. If this answers your question could I invite you to rate my answer before you go today, otherwise the site doesn’t pay me for the time spent with you. Thanks in advance and good luck.
Sadly not no. But that is an argument you can use.
