Under the terms of your tenancy agreement, all communal areas including external courtyards, gardens and porches should be kept in a clean and tidy condition. This includes keeping them clear of rubbish, cutting grass and trimming back foliage. If you have any suggestions we can put forward to your landlord in order to assist you in carrying out your obligations, please contact us.

An important part of keeping your garden clean is to prevent the attraction of rats, mice or other vermin. You will also need to ensure that your property is internally kept as clean as possible in order to deter pests such as mice, rats and bugs. Only put your bin bags out on the day they are due to be collected.

Note: Findlay Property operate a ’21 day pest policy’ whereby we will deal with any reports of pests within the first 21 days of you living at the property, but after then it will be your responsibility.
