“they will not include it in our lease because it is a ‘courtesy’ that the owner maintain the lawn”

“Dear PoPville,

I live in a multi-unit (4) building which recently switched management companies. For the 4 years prior to this new management company, the old company maintained the shared living spaces like the front and back yards. Since the sale of our building, our yards have significantly overgrown and now resemble an unwanted and gross tangle of weeds and such resembling a jungle.

After complaining about the yards and asking for it to be explicitly written in our lease that the owner will take ownership over the maintenance of our shared lawn, the new management company– which actually is just a liaison between the tenants and the overseas owner (the owner has opted not to use their services for anything other than leasing and communicating with us)– recently informed us that they will not include it in our lease because it is a “courtesy” that the owner maintain the lawn. Is this normal, especially for multi-unit building of renters?”
