If there's rats in the garage would it be the landlord's or the tenant's responsibility?

Are you keeping food in the garage ?

Depends how the rats are getting in and why they are staying

No

The neighbour who used to live here said that the people who used to live here had a problem too. So I think they might have always been here

Landlord but the council comes out for rats

Can I do anything about this myself?
Or does it need professionals?

Call your council and have them come out

Rats aren't easy, it would probably be easier in the longer tern to get professionals in to deal with them rather than try yourself. You can help by making it a less attractive environment for them by getting rid of rubbish and removing hiding places.

Mice are found next to a food source, rats near a water source....probably a broken drain
