for the past month I have been hearing rats crawling around in the ceiling as well as where my heater unit and water tank is in my apartment. I have notice a large amount of rat feces where the water unit is located. Also behind the water heater there is a hole where the rats are going out and in, and from there
the are coming into my kitchen from a hole that is apparently located behind the dish washer.
I have spoken to management several times but I keep being told maintenance is busy.
I was told the first day that I reported the situation that it would be taken care of the next day.
it's been 2 weeks now and nothing have been done.
what can I do to have this resolved.
First you need to report it in writing. Then if they still don't do anything in a reasonable time, you can hire an exterminator for a reasonable cost and deduct it from your rent.
