Halacha - Maakeh
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: Yes you must put up a maakeh. The relevant issue is not ownership of the area, but whether a dangerous situation exists in the place you live. It is chovas ha'dar, an obligation on the person who actually dwells there and not on the technical owner, similar to mezuza.
