How can I help with this please?
When did you take over the property?
Does anybody else have access to the property?
Sorry, I did respond to this. I don’t know why it didn’t come out.
There are a variety of issues with this.
The one that I can see immediately is that their view is that almost certainly this type of infestation is due to the manner of occupation rather than the structure of the property.
If you had been a very recent tenant then the previous tenant would be responsible.
The way to get works done is to complain to Environmental Health. They will still be interested but whether they will blame the landlord for this I cannot say.
Can I clarify anything for you?
