Pests on privately owned land

If rats and mice are causing a problem on privately owned land (eg an overgrown garden, building site etc) we can serve a notice on the landowner. The notice will require that the land is treated and the problem dealt with.

We may not be able to help with the following:

  • unregistered land. Unregistered land is simply land, the ownership of which is not registered at the Land Registry
  • accumulations of inert material such as building rubble
  • overgrown gardens. Unless it can be proven that it is attracting vermin
