WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DEALING WITH PEST INFESTATIONS WHEN RENTING
People will often ask: who is responsible for dealing with pest infestations when renting? Unfortunately, the answer to this question is not always clear-cut. As set out in the tenancy agreement, tenants have a duty to maintain good hygiene standards. Tenants must also be aware of the risk of pests entering their rental property. For example, bed bugs or common clothes moths can enter a property on personal items. Landlords however, have an obligation to deal with pest issues that arise from previous tenants, as well as addressing pest intrusions that arise from building issues. For example, if a rat was to enter the property via drains, (information about rats in drains can be found here), if mice enter via external brick work or there are squirrel infestations in a loft space. Ultimately, all parties have their role to play in preventing, acting on and dealing with pest issues.

Rats and mice infestations can be extremely distressing for tenants, especially when a sighting occurs out of the blue. It is essential that emergency pest control is responsive and effective to reduce stress. Mercury Pest Control has substantial experience providing emergency pest control in London.

CLEAR REPORTING FOR LANDLORDS AND PROPERTY MANAGERS IS ESSENTIAL
As a property manager or landlord the thought of dealing with pest problems in rental properties can be daunting. For this reason, detailed pest management reports are essential. Pest management reports can highlight issues within the property, such as poor hygiene and can provide recommendations to prevent future issues. Detailed pest management reports with photos improve lines of communication between property managers and landlords. We provide detailed reports identifying the source of pest issues in rental properties and recommendations for preventative measures.
PEST CONTROL CONTRACTS FOR BLOCKS OF FLATS
There are several entry points for pests in blocks of flats. For example, mice can enter via car parks, loading bays and plant rooms. In addition to this, pests can travel within the network of a building via pipe-work and wiring in riser cupboards. Refuge areas can provide food sources for mice and boiler cupboards are also potential nesting locations for german/oriental cockroaches and pharaoh ants. In order to retain a pest free environment it therefore essential to have a block management contract in place. Block management contracts provide regular pest control services to ensure that all areas are pest free. At Mercury Pest Control we provide a comprehensive block management pest control service which can be tailored to the needs of your building.
PEST PROOFING FOR RENTAL PROPERTIES IS ESSENTIAL
As identified above, there are several potential points for pests to enter a property. For example, air-bricks are an ideal entry point for mice,and drains can succumb to a rat infestation. Therefore, as a property manager or landlord it is essential to pest proof your housing portfolio to prevent pest issues. Following our initial visit to the rental property, Mercury Pest Control will provide detailed pest prevention recommendations. For example, stainless steel grills for air bricks or internal pest proofing to prevent mice. Similarly, we can install rat prevention systems for the drain network, for further detail see our rats in drains blog.
