The OWNERS duty.
















As a house OWNER in Norway, you have to keep the pavement clear. It does not matter if the building is a shop or have offices, it is the owners duty to make it safe.
That includes also safe from melting snow or ice, from the roof too.

That's a great policy!! I lived in communities that some owners would just ignore their duty and get away with it :(

The same applies here- letter carriers have to get to your door.

It is a great policy, but what happens if the homeowner is sick, etc. And just no one able? Used to be here kids came around and always willing to shovel for a few bucks.

Yep, the same is true here. Enforcement, though, tends to be slack.

We live so far out in the country that, if it snows too much, the letter carrier doesn't even show up.

That's a good idea, not that we usually see enough snow to worry about...

So a lot of cleaning snow fall.

Not something I've ever had to consider Gunn. It's good for owners to take responsibility for their own property, unless they're too old or infirm!

The city keep the pavements clear, we need to keep only our own home yards clean, and also take off melting snow or ice from the roof.
But the creation of the snow is heavy work. It is good to live in an apartment building in the winter (as I do).
The photo is stunning.
