    Had the same issue a few weeks ago.

    Bought some wasp killer powder for £8.00 and sorted it.

    Not worth the hassle for such a small common problem.

    As a wasps nest is not caused by anything the tenant has done so I would pay for it as the LL. Its not expensive & will create good will if you do it promptly rather than arguing about cost.

    IMO, T is resp for eradicating insect infestation,.
    Most bee/wasps will die over winter, so I suggest T & LL could agree to share eradication after <date>.

    Why would the Council presume the LL was responsible - are they courts of contract law?

    I had a wasp nest by sky light in kitchen they kept coming back to same spot for 3 years, couldn't switch light on at night !

    LL wouldn't do anything, in end local council paid and sent LL the Bill, which they did pay in the End but cost them even more as if they had paid for it to be done in the 1st place...

    Two months is fairly short. I would do it.

    Are you sure they are wasps not bees?

    Wasp removal...whose responsibility

    Tenant has reported possible wasp nest at front of property apparently down a drain. The wasps were not there at the start of the tenancy two months ago. Who is responsible, tenant or landlord, for the removal of the wasps please?

    How long did it take for someone to get there after it was reported? Just wondering if they're trying it on. Assuming they had furniture to move it rakes a little time to organise.

    With 5+ months rent o/s, your priority should be to get them out asap.

    With all due respect, I do not think you are equipped to take it forward in a manner that will give you what you need within a reasonable period. I would also recommend that you instruct a professional to carry out an...

    I wonder if I could trouble someone for advice, having recently become a Landlord for the first time ?

    A year ago I inherited a small 1970s one bedroom flat in Birmingham.

    The flat was originally heated with a couple of electric bar heaters....

    The supply was cut off immediately by the suppliera and soon as I was notified I responded with getting someone out to investigate.

    To be honest, the money isn't really the issue. I'm just annoyed at how things were done.

    Thanks for your input

    Hi all - I'm new to this so apologies if this (or similar) has been dealt with somewhere else!
    I own a property in the south west but currently live in London. I've been renting the property out privately. My last tenant moved out in January 2020 and I was planning to get quite a bit of (much needed)
