If the place has been treated or when the pests will grow who will be responsible for their treatment. There are cases of conflict over the kinds of pest and responsibility for the treatment.

The Reasons for The Conflicts on Pest Control Responsibility

All know that it’s the responsibility of the tenant to keep the property free of dirt as well as pests because he is living. If you have got a treated house then again the responsibility falls on your side to return the property in a pest-free condition. The fact of the matter is that there is no fixed law or rule to end or solve this dispute. Every landlord owns their rules and regulations and implements those on the tenant forcibly. If the tenant fails to fulfil the conditions they deduct the money for the pest control from the security money.

The Types of Pests and The Responsible Side

These are the expected facts about the responsible side for pest control:

  • The treatment of the flea solely become the duty of the tenant. This is due to the fact that the tenants have kept pets on the property that spread this pest. And the properties maintenance does not include this problem.
  • For tenants who have kept pets (cats or dogs), it is part of the end of the lease agreement that the tenant arranges a flea treatment before leaving the property.
  • Rodents, cockroaches, ants, spiders and bed bugs are at the tenant side if he got a treated house otherwise the side changes to the owner. 
  • The landlord is responsible for the pest control if the pests have grown due to faults in the property from an earlier time. 
  • Make a clear discussion with the owner before entering the property and after leaving the property such that no conflict remains.
