have had 15 bats make their way to living area. they're in attic, basement, ductwork, walls, floors..I can't sleep, I have a child in the home, missed work due to lack of sleep and getting sick due to lack of sleep. I'm completely paranoid afraid to pick things up, shower, go in closet and basement. Bats are protected in wi n it's winter so companies aren't allowed to exclude them until spring, so they hibernate in homes, but when weather warms up, they move around in the walls. One was in my washbasket (dead) and they are two more on stickytraps dead in my closet that the landlord found but didn't remove! the guy he hired to get rid of them has a very long list of things done wrong or plain not done. he began exclusion in sept. now my landlord says his hands are tied and i have to wait
I agree, report this to your local news to try and get the ball rolling. It also sound like your landlord had breached the duty of habitability. Which requires LL to keep the residences they rent in a habitable condition. If he fails to live up to his duty you may be able to deduct a percentage of your rent since you didn't get everything you bargained for. Your have to consult with an attorney thought, these claims can be complicated.
