I'm sure this has been touched on already, but I thought I might ask if anyone can help me with how to get my building manager to ensure the only things living in my apartment have two legs.
My apartment is approximately 5 years old, I live in a 6 story building, in which I'm on the third floor, well above ground level. My apartment is kept very clean and I've seen mice. I called my super who put down sticky traps (and a mouse has been seen since, not on the trap) so I emailed the building company (rhymes with Millam Properties)
I found a bylaw in M100 http://www.halifax.ca/legislation/bylaws/hrm/blm100.pdf
, page 4 of 15 that states "buildings shall be kept free of rodents and insects at all times. Methods for exterminating pests shall be in accordance with the provisions of Pest Contol Products Act" but what can I make them do? Should they be sealing up the holes where they obviously came from? What are my rights? I couldn't find anything in the tenancy act.
I realize Halifax is a water city and rodents are a problem, but I don't live downtown, I don't live in a ground floor apartment and I keep the floors clear of crumbs and food. If anyone has any suggestions it'd be most helpful!
