Landlord Failed to Keep Front Yard Free of Debris

LVT Number: #30918

The DOS issued a violation notice to landlord when its inspector found a large accumulation of scattered bags, paper, and wrappers in the front yard of landlord's two-family building, visible from the public sidewalk one morning between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. Landlord objected, and claimed that he cleaned the front yard that morning, and did so twice a day. Landlord said that he cleaned at 6:30 a.m. before he went to work and then after work around 7:00 p.m. Landlord argued that it may have been windy that day, causing random garbage to be blown into the area.
