Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Do you have a history of pest control problems please?
Hi - there have been sightings of rats in the flat below mine (not my flat). A former tenant did say that they thought they might have heard a mouse. I suggested to her having done a bit of research that she makes sure no food is left out to attract (she was not a very clean tenant), and mentioned the varoius traps on the market that friends have used. As I say, we have recently completely refurbished and redecorated we had the builder stuff wire wool into crevices etc as a precaution. Other than that, I have not been aware of a rat being in the flat ever.
So its all coincidence that he wants to leave, you refuse and he says you have a rat problem?
it seems this is an unfortunate coincidence, yes.
or fortunate for him...
ps. Astrid is the name of my wife.
I don't think you have answered my question - although I have received an email asking me to rate your service!
Oh sorry!. OK - I am asking whether you think he will have any grounds for in some way claiming against me due to the fact that we had laid a mouse trap and it had caught a couple of rodents and they had been left there, and somehow he has caught salmonella... or alternatively he manages to get out of paying any of the remaining rent by building a case to say that the flat was inhabitable somehow.
He is making an assumption at this point.
Alex, isnt there a possibility that they could find evidence to suggest that there is salmonella im the flat though? Putting me at risk again? Or would that simply prove impossible... ie the tenant themselves could have brought it in unwittingly from external sources?
Is it a provable link?
I seem to still be asked to rate your response... i already rated it as excellent.
ok thankyou very much for your help.
