Who is responsible for pest control when renting?
The responsibility of who deals with pest control for a rented property isn’t always clear cut – sometimes the landlord is responsible, while other times the tenant might be responsible. In some cases, the tenancy agreement will clearly state whether the landlord or tenant is responsible for pest control.
As a general rule, the landlord usually has a duty to keep the property in a habitable state and the tenant has a duty to keep the property clean and maintain a good level of hygiene. Both sides are therefore responsible for ensuring that the property is kept in a state to avoid pests - but sometimes that’s not enough.
When is a landlord responsible for pest control?
Here are some examples of when a landlord would typically be responsible for dealing with pests:
The pest infestation was caused by an issue with the property itself, such as a hole in a wall or a gap in the roof
Pests were already present in the property when the tenant moved in
Insufficient measures were taken by the landlord to deal with a historic pest problem in the property
The tenancy agreement expressly states that the landlord is responsible for dealing with any issues related to pest control
When is a tenant responsible for pest control?
Here are some examples of when a tenant would typically be responsible for dealing with pests:
When pests have become an issue due to poor hygiene and sanitary conditions, such as tenants piling up rubbish and food in or around the property
Tenants have caused damage to the property that have allowed pests to enter
