    Oh wow, that's like umm nothing!! Can't believe they care about that. Upon leaving and doing a final inspection maybe but during your tenancy?! Crazy.

    Edit: I'd spray with weed killer and whipper snipper to get rid of them.

    As per a previous post - do you have your property condition report, and are there weeds mentioned? I'd come back with "yes there are small weeds however this is as per the property condition report". They look pretty dead so yes - just cut them with a whipper snipper and rake them out. No way in the world you should be expected to hand pull them. You could also take photos (discretely) of the neighbours' weeds and send them to the agent saying that given the proximity to the other weeds, the seeds will always be blowing onto your property. Might not be much by way of an action now, but a good record for the future if things go south.

    I'd do a token effort around the walls and leave it at that. Then it's up to the agent - they will either tell the owner it's all fine and it's the end of the story, or it will escalate and you will be given a breach notice (unless that's the one that you've already been given for the re-inspect). Chances are the agent wants to escalate this like a hole in the head. Do you know who the owner is? Is there any way they can actually see in your yard, or is it being driven by the agent? Your lease may have the owner's name on it, then perhaps google?

    I think real estate people can be a bit unrealistic. Ask them to contact the owner directly and to explain your situation health wise. The owner might not care at all and may just be happy that you are paying the rent. Most people don't purchase a house as a rental expecting that the gardens will be immaculate. I'd expect grass mowed semi regularly but that's about it.

    Wow, your landlord is picky. That's literally nothing. But having worked in real estate myself I know that some landlords are just ar$3holes. If a rental garden is really bad and the property manager notices it, they will of course let the landlord know, and issue the tenant with a letter requesting that they fix it, but given that your weeds are minimal I'd suggest it's the landlord who is behind that one. I doubt a property manager would waste their time on that one without being asked to by the LL.

    We own our farm, but I'm tipping that your landlord would lose the will to live if he saw some spots in our garden. As you can see in this pic we can't actually see our front steps at the moment. We've had so much rain here in the last few months that the grass and weeds are out of control

    Lol Hollywood! Well we just signed a new lease with another property with NO garden and a lawn that can be done in half an hour! This one runs out on the 13th of Jan 2017. The new one starts the 6 Jan 2017 gives us a week to clean the inside. And hand back the keys!

    We went through a tried and tested agent who loved the way we left the place when we rented from them before.
    We fixed things and got out stains.

    The real estate was pressuring us to sign another lease tomorrow for this current one that runs out on the 13th. Now we can tell them to shove it
