There Is A Tree On The Property I Am Renting. I Would Like To Cut It Down Because I Fear It Might Fall On My Home. Can I Cut Down The Tree?

A tenant does not have the right to cut or destroy growing trees or otherwise injure the property. A tenant has a right to use and enjoy the rental property but not to make changes in the property. You should contact your landlord informing him of your concerns about the tree, the danger you believe it poses and the action you wish him to take. If the landlord fails to repair a dangerous condition, he may be held responsible for any damages which result from the failure to remedy the problem.
