Neighbours claimed the man would repeatedly pee on the lawn and against trees in the garden. Despite an order from the landlord, the man was undeterred from taking his "business" outside.

The same week a court date for the case was set, the defendant was again seen relieving himself on the grass.

A tenant living on the seventh floor complained of the smell of urine coming from the garden. The case was brought by the landlord of the block's ground-floor flat.

The judge in the trial ruled Friday that the landlord could terminate the man's rental contract without notice, due to the defendant's disturbance of his neighbours.

It's getting so a guy can't even pee-pee any more ...

This story reminds me of the "Terror Pinkler" story from the Hamburg area a few years back.

It's no surprise news here. It is common practice here in Germany to take a leak anywhere, in Frankfurt they even take a dump in public places.

It does not say the tenant living on the seventh floor smelt it in his flat.

He also used the communal garden, so I assume he/she smelt it there.

I wouldn't like a neighbour peeing in my Hof-garten either. Un-hygenic for a start, spreads disease. Also the smell, especially in the summer is disgusting.

There is really no excuse for this repeated behavior so it must have been intentional.

Let him move on and leave the others in peace but something tells me that a moron like this will make a special trip to come back frequently, under cover of darkness, and continue this childish behavior.

Yes, he deserves to be evicted. One transgression of the tenancy rules can be overlooked, but he was a flagrant offender.
