Pest Control in rental properties
As a landlord it is likely that you or the letting agency operating on your behalf is responsible for dealing with pest problems in your rental property. Pests can cause distress, discomfort and even health issues to those living in your property, so it is paramount that they are dealt with immediately.
Who is responsible for pest control in rental properties?
The best way to identify whether it is you or the tenant that is responsible for pest control in your rented property is to refer back to your tenancy agreement. If you have stated that you will keep the premises in a good and habitable state, then it is likely that you will also be responsible for dealing with pests.
Similarly, if your tenant has reported faults with the property, which you are yet to repair, you will also be responsible for any pest infestations that occur as a result of it.
The only time a landlord is unlikely to be responsible for pest control within rented properties is if the tenants have caused the infestation e.g. from failing to dispose of rubbish correctly.
