My new home rat hell

Adrian Holliday

Moving into her new £300,000 Victorian home on Friday 13 August 2010, Sally Rogers didn't expect to find it infested with rats. Especially after spending £600 on a Homebuyer Report.

The house was so riddled with vermin that Rogers, 34 and husband Tim, 33, moved out immediately, spending thousands in rent in a converted garage while the vermin were removed. Didn't their survey warn them?
