I am renting an apartment which has recently been entered by mice. Pest control has been called by the mgmt company, they have set poison and detected a few gaps in walls and floors that are very likely to be the source of the infestation (I have discovered a few more after the inspection). They have recommended sealing those gaps as soon as possible.
The landlord is refusing to seal the gaps on the grounds that this has been an isolated incident as of today, and it might be expensive to do the works. He claims that the apartment is compliant to regulations and inhabitable - despite I have seen mice in my bedroom a few nights ago.
What are my rights here? Is there a way I can compel him to have the apartment proofed, and quickly?
