Pest Control - Who pays

Post by dazzlebabe » Wed, 09 Sep 2009 5:40 pm

i have been having pests come in from the common area into my open air yard. Also, pests have been spotted around the exterior of my apartment and the chute. I called the mgmt office and enquired on how often they fumigate and they said once a week. However, that is only done on the 1st floor. I am on the 18th! this means whatever chemicals they use can't kill the pests on my floor.

They said they could ask the pest control to visit my apartment when they are in the condo but I have to pay them for the visit as mgmt cannot verify that the pests are coming from the outside due to their negligence.

Do I have a case against them?
Just me

I would speak to some of the other occupiers of the apartments above and below you (Hopefully you'll get an owner too). If there are more than one of you who are experiencing this then the managing agents might be more amenable to discussion and the fact that it is a "common problem".
