”The one method is that if the tenants crawl out on their stomachs and you’ll’t anticipate them to do this however extra importantly they cannot depart the bins out.
”The storage door offered entry to the trail so they may take the bins out – now they must wheel them by the home which is ridiculous.
”If they’d moved the fence again by only a foot then the door would have opened and we would not be on this state of affairs however they only will not hear.”
