1 - Read the statutes. Know your rights and obligations. Know your remedies for adverse conditions. Follow statutory procedures to the letter.

2 - Put your complaints in writing. Keep a permanent copy. Take photos of any adverse conditions.

 

3 - Read the resources about trapping bats. You're going to have to be pro-active if you expect to get rid of them.

Your landlord nor his agents can't be in your home 24/7 to watch for bats. Self preservation is nobody's business but your own.

In any future posts, please make a better effort to use proper capitalization and punctuation (throughout the whole post).  Doing so will make it easier for others to read and understand.

Huh?

 

To the extent I could follow your post, I agree with the prior response.
