I allege that since you pay the government to use your house/property every year, that you are merely renting it. Miss a payment, and see who owns it.
Just because the landlord doesn't object to some of the stuff you do, doesn't mean you'll always get away with it and stories like this illustrate my point.

Several weeks ago, the City of Orlando notified us that our vegetable garden violated the city’s antiquated local ordinances. Either tear up the vegetable garden, they said, or else. The “or else” the city is referring to is a draconian system of penalties that would subject us to fines of up to $500 per day. This in a city that claims it strives to be the “greenest city in America.”
What was their "crime"? They planted vegetables in their FRONT yard. For that, they are looking at a $500/day fine.
Sorry folks. I just don't believe in the existence of "private" property in this country.
