You have options if your landlord is requiring you to shovel the snow in front of your multi-family rental property, especially if you are elderly. Shoveling the snow can cause medical issues especially if you are pregnant or infirmed. First, lodge a complaint with your landlord or their agent. That puts them on notice and gives them the reasonable opportunity to take care of their responsibilities. If that does not work, it is the best idea to call an attorney to seek their advice. Your landlord or management company will have an attorney, so they might be resistant to helping. A good attorney can fight for your rights to walk on a walkway that is free from snow and ice.
