Is Pest Control Part Of The Maintenance Responsibilities Of The Landlord?

By: LawInfo
No, unless your rental agreement provides that the landlord will supply pest control services. The lease should be read to see if pest control is specified as the responsibility of the landlord. If it is not in the lease, pest control may not be required of the landlord unless local housing or health codes require this. If the pest problem in the apartment is severe, the landlord may be required to address the problem because the property`s condition violates local health and safety ordinances.
