Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear, he is also charging you for the vacant period?Did he tell you in advance he would do this?
I agree you need to pay for the cost of flea treatment. Had you not had your cat then there would not have been fleas.
But 28 days is long enough to get rid of them - all you need is spray several times a week for a few weeks. I know, I have cats.
So unless he told you there would be a charge for lost rent then he can NOT charge for that.
But he can charge for the flea treatment.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Only if you caused that directly. The Landlord would need to show they were fleas off your cat. Rather than fleas off any other cat.
Does that clarify?
Exactly, that is the point
If that is the case then you would be liable.
But the Landlord would need to show they come from your cat.
