Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
Do you know if your bylaws provide anything about pest control?
Generally speaking, your condo association would be responsible for repairs or maintenance of common elements. Accordingly, unit owners are responsible for the maintenance of their own units.
Thus, this particular issue would hinge on whether the association is doing something to facilitate the rats being on the property (such as leaving garbage in dumpsters too long, not properly keeping common areas clean, etc.) OR if the rat issue is a result of particular condo owners having units that are not well kept...therefore attracting rats.
But, if the condo association has rules or bylaws about pest control/paying for pest control, etc., then that's going to govern the situation.
Hi - if you need anything further, please let me know. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks.
