The Problems with Pests – Part 2 – England and Wales

The second article of our two-part series on pest control looks at where the responsibilities lie in relation to pest outbreaks. We explore the scenarios where the landlord has responsibility, such as the structure and exterior of a property not being in repair, which could allow pest access.

We look at when both landlord and tenant have responsibility, namely if the structure and exterior is not in repair and the tenant’s actions are a contributory factor. There are times when the tenant has sole responsibility, and when neither are responsible due to events beyond the control of landlord and tenant.
