Landlords in most places are not legally required to provide snow removal services but if you're renting an apartment the landlord will usually have someone to keep the walkways and driveways free and clear of snow and ice.

But if you live in a rental home then it may be your responsibility to remove the snow yourself unless it's spelled out in the rental lease agreement that they provide snow removal and ice removal.

Some landlords will charge a small extra fee added into the rent to pay for the snow removal.

So while most landlords will provide snow removal if it's for an apartment or duplex rental some landlords that just rent out houses may not provide snow removal but some do.

If it's not spelled out in your rental agreement that snow removal is provided then there's not much you can do to force the issue.
