contacting apartment agency for rules appeal

I have lived in a three-apartment house since Nov. Really quiet but no problems with the occasional shower after 10, laundry rules, etc. I feel fortunate to be in such a nice, laid-back place.

Yesterday all-three residents got a letter from the agency stating that someone informed them about a tent installed in the front garden (said it was against the rules). It is a quality one, looks nice, and makes the space more useable. I had nothing to do with it so I am guessing one neighbor installed it and the other complained.

I am wondering if it is worthwhile to contact the agency saying I support the tent? Then it would be 2/3 renters for it. Does anyone think this would be persuasive? Again, I have no real stake in this but would certainly use it if available. Thanks for your opinions and have a good weekend!

Re: contacting apartment agency for rules appeal

Is your property over-looked? It could have been a neighbour who made the complaint.

Talk to your fellow tenants to see if they think it's worth it.
