Your landlord, or your local authority Pest Control or a private pest control firm both of whom will charge you to get rid if them so be prepared for that. If they are coming out of damaged drains you should report it to your local water company. 

slug and snail eggs in my allotment soil, please help, they have eaten all my root vegetable.

I would treat the area with Nematodes specific to slugs. Not sure if it's too late this year or not ( I'm sure someone here will know) but certainly next spring. 

Ive found them to be very effective. 

Also spend time now clearing up the garden removing places where slugs and snails can lurk over the winter. 

Good luck.
