Id love to have a tenant like you! They sound like theyre trying to find a reason to kick you out....i mean, evicting you for not trimming back a plant?! Really?! If you don't want to move, then just be the perfect tenant (basically just keep doing what you're doing). Could you maybe bring it up with the property manager? They should have taken photos of everything before you moved in, and surely they would have notice the chipped tile during their regular inspections.
