Shalom, one of the residents in a neighboring apartment building has a tree in his chatzer . In the fall, hundreds of dead leaves fall into the entrance of our building and we need to pay someone to clean up. Can we demand the tree owner pay a share of this cost?
Since the leaves fell from natural causes, the owner is not obligated to pay for them. However, if his branch is sticking over your property, you may request that he cut it down.
