My tenants have advised me they have a mouse problem I looked at the Shorthold Tenancy Agreement which is on a 'rolling tenancy' at the moment and it clearly states under Tenants Obligations that the Tenant must "pay and arrange for the removal of all vermin, pests and insects, if infestation begins during the Term" - which it did as I had a cat when I lived there. Also my first tenants who lived at the property for a year had no such problem. They are Council tenants and have spoken to the Environmental department at Wandsworth Council about the matter. The tenants then advised me that the Council say it is the Landlords responsibility. When I spoke to the Council they tell me that the clause in the Tenancy Agreement is 'not legally binding'. Can anyone tell me who needs to pay Wandsworth Council the £82.00 that it will cost to clear the property of the vermin? Thanks for any info/advice.
