Moved in to house in july and had ongoing problem with mice . Pest control have been out but seems to be getting worse. More frequent sightings even think we've seen a rat. Letting agents useless . House showing signs of infestation, droppings, gnawed items , dead and live animals , smell of ammonia. Awaiting visit from pest control again , reported to environmental health

Traps? Rat poison? Maybe give the house a good deep clean too to stop them coming back

Not the tenants responsibility to do that.

Agreed! But being in the same situation the property management failed to do anything about it leaving it to us to do so in the meantime.

You have contacted environmental health and presumably the landlord. Make sure that you have documented the reports to the letting agents - signed for letters etc. Also take photos - of damage etc. It is unacceptable to have this. Landlord responsible unless you are leaving food out or not clearing bins

You need to do it in such a way you dont do their job but makes your case to environmental health with a view to leaving.

What are you using to bait the traps?
