I think it's Leycesteria Formosa, also known as Himalayan Honeysuckle.  It can grow quite large but you can prune it hard.

I would leave them.  The leaves rot away very quickly and will feed the plant.

If a business changes hands the existing t&c's would have to apply for a set period at the end of which new negotiations would take place.  If your contract states a size I don't believe that they could change your plot size without your consent.

I think your first picture is a Eucalyptus.  The second does look like a smoke bush, Cotinus coggygria.

Slugs love beetroot so they could be the cause.

Helleborus niger in family garden- too dangerous?

I would keep it, if you remove the flowers when they have died you won't get the seed heads.  I found that my children trampled plants rather than eat them
