    Mouse problem landlord or tenant's responsibility? 25th May 10 at 2:13 PM
    My tenant emailed me yesterday to say she saw a mouse in her bedroom and was so worried she couldn't sleep. I wasn't sure who's responsibility it was but as I wasn't sure and it wasn't a big expense I took responsibility and went to the property and laid poison and traps.

    But just out of interest who's responsibility is it? I couldn't get a clear answer from internet searches but picked up clues that it may have been down to the landlord. My wife and parents think it is the tenants but I actually think it is the landlords. I called environmental health but they said it would take them 5 days and due to the tenants concern I thought it best iof I dealt with it straight away.
