A tenant left a window in the kitchen of an HMO wide open, they had to release a catch to do it, and as result 2 pigeons flew into the kitchen. They managed to get them out but as you would imagine the mess was not great, with poop and feathers all over. We called in a cleaner to get rid of the mess as it could be hazardous. Can I charge them for the cleaning as it was their action that let the pigeons in?
