    Default Landlord says I cannot skate on the property?

    Guys, I would like your advice on this situation. I came across an issue today with my Landlord. My Landlord says I am not allowed to skateboard off the property on the sidewalk because it's private property and there are no signs that say no skateboarding. I am just transporting myself off the property? I even mentioned that I have a bike and she said I am not allowed to ride my bike off the property too. But they have a bike rack here? What the frig? I got a notice from my landlord that I was causing a disturbance in their property last night. it's such a nice place. I just got lucky getting this place and I live in a college town. I told her I was just skateboarding off the property. She told me this is private property and you are not allowed to skate off the property. Even my bike to do that. I told her you can't do that because it's a public sidewalk where people walk and yes it's private property though but it's still a public sidewalk where people can freely walk across the area to another place. I was not even socializing in the property as a group but transporting only myself off the place to the street as a ride. I was not damaging anything at all. I also told her that the weather damages the property 365 days a year from snow, rain and any weather condition. She said it doesn't matter it's private property. You cannot skate off the property at all. I told her I have a bike too. She said you can't do that too. A freaking bike man? Like really? We can walk on the sidewalk but we cannot ride a skateboard or a bike off the property to transport yourself to another place? Like wow. Can I get any legal advice transporting a here to explain here what I did is not criminal? I mean I can understand the noise might be bothersome at night but still transporting a device to get you somewhere on a sidewalk should not hold any grounds to be threatened to be evicted just mattered. She won't evict me though. I talked her down about it. It was a warning. Advice? I would love to talk to a lawyer about this but I rather advice from every skater. What do you think?

    The fuck. Just carry your skateboard until you walk far enough from the property and then start skating?

    If you let them tell you what to do with skateboarding you're a bitch.

    If it's the public sidewalk running along a city street then they are almost always public. If it's a private road going into an apartment complex, then it probably is their property still.

    In order to get evicted they would have to have had a bunch of written warnings for ignoring their rules. It's really hard to evict people legally.

    I hope you took pictures before moving into your apartment. 99% chance your landlord is going to say you damaged the carpet or banged a counter top and take your deposit when you move out, if they are threatening eviction just for skateboarding on the sidewalk.
