What is the problem?

Properties infested with pests such as rats, mice, cockroaches, fleas, and bed bugs can represent a risk to occupants and public health in general. Infestations can spread diseases, cause damage, and aggravate certain health conditions including asthma, eczema, and other allergies. Mental health may also be affected.

Who is responsible for dealing with the infestation? 

Responsibility for dealing with infestations depends in part on:

  • Whether there is anything relevant in the tenancy agreement.

  • Whether the property was already infested when the tenant took occupation, or was caused by a structural defect or disrepair, in which case the landlord may be liable.

  • Whether the infestation may have resulted from some act or omission of the tenant, in which case the tenant may be responsible for dealing with the problem.

Where the problem poses a wider risk, local authorities may have a responsibility to act; either by requiring owners or occupiers to deal with the problem, or by dealing with it themselves in which case they may seek to recover their costs. It may not always be clear where responsibility for tackling an infestation lies and in some instances legal advice may need to be sought.

Property Management Pest Control Tips

Anyone seeking to establish who is responsible for dealing with an infestation should consider seeking specific advice from:

The local authority’s environmental health department; an environmental health officer may be able to identify the cause of the problem and this, in turn, will help to ascertain who is responsible for removing the infestation.

A certified pest control professional who can establish the chronology of the infestation, the origin, and means to resolve.

 

A lawyer, a Citizens Advice Bureau, or a housing adviser to establish whether there is anything relevant in the tenancy agreement and whether the tenant might have any right to sue the landlord and/or to end the tenancy.
