After 2 yrs. the landlord says we have to move a horizontal bar because there are sliding glass doors on both ends of the room. Legal?

    Oh, after reading your comments, it is a gymnast's horizontal bar.

    For absolute certainty, yes, that is a safety hazard that could very well send someone flying into one of the glass sliding doors. It is a good idea to follow your landlord's request and remove the gymnastic equipment out of the room that is flanked by two sliding glass doors. It is a hazard, not matter how good the gymnast using it...accidents do happen.

    Yes, it's legal for a landlord to object to sports equipment placed in a way that endangers the safety of the occupants. The glass doors represent such a hazard, as does the sports equipment itself.

    Are you talking about a bar across the sliding glass doors to prevent anyone outside from coming in?

    Read your contract. Check local zoning laws.

      Given that bit of important information, yes, the landlord can make you remove it. It is a safety hazard and he doesn't want to get sued when some kid goes flying through a glass door. Why do you think it's safe to have that? Why would you endanger your child like that?

    If his insurance company said to, yes it is legal.

    • No insurance involved, just the landlords. We have renters insurance as well.

    I don't really understand your question (what kind of horizontal bar?, serving what purpose?, how does that relate to the presence of two sets of sliding doors?, what is the landlord concerned about?). However, it is the landlord's property, so he has considerable say about fixtures.
