Is a tenant responsible for the upkeep of the grass including watering even if the city has put a restriction on watering lawns due to the drought that went on for years in California?
Hi Maria – It depends on the contract. Some contracts are created with an upkeep clause while others are not or provide provisions for watering in drought areas. You should consult a real estate lawyer in your city to find out the answers to your questions. It could change from city to city – with laws regarding watering during droughts, so consulting a lawyer with the contract is the only way to be sure. – Best, Diana
