Thanks for your question. The property is not up to the repairing standard if vermin is managing to enter the property. So the landlord is in breach of the lease both by letting the property in that condition and then refusing to do anything about it. For that reason they can’t impose the terms of the lease on you and you can leave without penalty and insist they give you the deposit back. In other words if someone breaks a contract they can’t enforce its terms. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited by JustAnswer for helping you today.
So they know what has to be done and they haven’t done it. That if anything makes it worse because they have taken advice and have a solution but haven’t implemented it.
Give them 7 days notice to confirm that they have instructed the necessary works. If they don’t respond you write holding them in breach of contract and say you are vacating and will claim damages for your losses, eg, if you couldn’t get similar nature and size accommodation at the same rent you would claim the different for the remaining term.
