Tenant Advice Needed

Recommended Posts

I’m renting at present , I’ve a problem:

a rat ate his way into the property via boiler house pipes ( ate thru expanding foam ) .

it  destroyed my washing machine , eating thru cabling & pipes .

landlord informed , after 4 days they called pest control guy , he called twice that week and set traps . That was 2 weeks ago ! No visit since . 

rat has been seen since traps set ( wireless cameras ) just walked past them .

ive been expected to still live here , but not allowed my child over until Rat is definitely gone , understandably 

I’ve gave notice to move out in 2 months , and landlords asking rent be paid in full as normal .

Question , should I pay rent in full as expected ??

Not at all an expert but if you don't pay you are in breach. You may well have a claim if you feel the Landlord has not acted properly and you may have good reason but before you take the decision to simply remain in the property but not pay for it, take legal advice. You have strong rights as a paying tenant.
