I own a one floor, one bed flat in a matrix of flats across three large victorian houses. My tenant (who has been living in the flat for 10 years) is experiencing frequent and persistent prescence of mice which, so far, Apest (pest controllers) have been unable to extinguish. I have spent thousands of pounds blocking up all obvious entry points in this flat but still they come. We are surrounded by neighbours on all sides they say they do not have persistent mice. They say they occasionally see a mouse and it doesn’t bother them.
My tenant understandably is agigated and we are both frustrated. We believe the solution to completely clear the mice would be a coordinated effort amongst the neighbours to work with Apest (I have offered to pay for everyone) taking the poison into their flats at the same time as well as making special efforts with hygeine (no food left out on surfaces, bins up off the ground and so on) but they are unwilling to participate, they geniunely believe there is no problem. I think they belivee we are being squeemish.
Is there ANY TOOL or LAW I could refer to in order to politely encourage or ‘lever’ participats to see that if they do not co-operate with a strategic effort to get rid of the mice in our building it could begin to affect them more radically.
The freeholders of the building are one set of neighbours who do not want to participate and do not believe there is a problem. They suggest we are over reacting.
Any help anyone can offer would be gratefully received.
