At Pestguard we get lots of calls from tenants and landlord as to who is responsible for getting rid of insects Â and rodents Â and who is responsible for paying .
Most landlords will pay for pest control services , as they like to keep there tenants happy,but tenants also have to keep the landlord happy too.
Landlords do have a duty of care towards there Â tenants,as does the tenant who is also responsible to keep the property pest free ………..Â BUT , their is a Â catch 22 situation , if a tenant moves into a empty property and it is pest free Â , then technically speaking the tenant Â is responsible to pay the cost to get rid of any pest that appear after they move in . Â ……BUT if the pests are present when the tenant moves into the property Â Â then the landlord has a responsibility to get rid of them , and pay any costs ….now here is the catch 22 ….proof that the pests were in the property to start with , or appear afterwards .
Pestguard offer Â a pest free Â survey inspection to all landlords ,estate agents ,and letting agents in the North East of England of Â all Â empty property to ascertain if it is pest free from insects & rodents and thus eliminating the responsibility from landlord as to who is liable for paying before a tenant moves in .
We present a certificate of evidence of Â the property to say it has been inspected from top to bottom ,and all findings and recommendations clearly marked .
All property`s are different , and as such they incur different costings for this service .
Please call for a survey of your property today .
