I would stop obsessing about the ten year guarantee that's not worth the paper its written on, and start spraying. Get a good dose in this year before the weather changes.

I suspect that a letter from you to the director of the housing association, setting out the problem, the cost, and a promise to take the said association to court, should get some action. They will not want to pay lawyers expenses either.

Worrying about the ten year guarantee is wasting time, all the time  it is spreading. Spray it now.

Once himself had got over the colour, he commented that the yellow ones and orange ones were very sweet. Today he said they tasted like supermarket toms. That was because I stripped the plants last week and they had finished ripening in the kitchen.

You must incinerate on site. It is illegal to transport jk to the tip, as it just spreads it.
