    End of tenancy fumigation

    I have just had the pre check for when I move out and the Letting agency rep says its now law that because I have a cat I have to get the house professionally fumigated and they charge about £200!

    is this actually true that it is now law?

    Tell them I'll donate £25 to an agreed Cat charity if they can name the law & section thereof.

    Nonsense!
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

          Did the landlord know you had a cat when they let the property to you?

            I had ferrets then and nothing was said, when I asked about a cat last year(been in the house for almost 8 years) they said I would have to pay an extra deposit but they never billed me for it

              Not the law but how many fleas, cat hairs and cat germs and toxoplasmosis bugs were there when you moved in?
              You need to return the property minus these additions.

                  My local council offers pretty cheap pest control, discounted for tenants. ( around £45) get the place clean, get the council in to spray for fleas and get a certificate and then ask for full deposit back

                    And if they don't agree very soon start a deposit dispute with whichever deposit scheme yours is with

                      In which case, any animal detritus is probably covered by fair wear and tear.

                      As long as the cat hasn't actually damaged anything, cats are cats and when you accept them you accept their invariable companions.
