Attorney May:

I'm renting a house with boat slips for 3 boats which my landlord rents out and doesn't allow me to park my boat. Is this legal?

Is it legal that my landlord rents the boat slip out and doesn't let me bring my boat to the dock in the property I rent?

Attorney's response:

It can be assumed that the landlord knew that these slips had value and would not want to include them in your lease. However, it really depends on the wording of the lease. If the lease does not say anything on the matter, you may have a good argument that they should be included as part of the property you lease, so long as they are attached the the property and one would naturally assume that they are apart of the property. Definitely read through the lease, and consider having an attorney review it to see if you have any options towards claiming the slips as part of your current lease. Good Luck!

What can I do to keep the landlord from coming to my house constantly and disturbing our right to privacy and showing up without notice?  The landlord shows up without calling. We always pay the rent in advance. Is he is violating our right to privacy?

Attorney's response:

It appears that they are abusing their right to enter the property and you should be given notice. Giving the landlord a verbal request to cease unreasonable visits without notice may resolve the concern and save money from hiring an attorney.
