Landlord Question and Answer Forum
The property was pest free when the lease was signed 10 months ago. Now that the weather is changing there has been a report of mice. There's no wording in the lease establishing responsibility for pest control. Am I as the landlord responsible for hiring an exterminator.

RE: Pest Control Responsibility
That depends on state law, but the bottom line is that you don't want pests getting a foothold in your rental property, so if you want to protect your investment, it behooves you to spend $100 on an exterminator. In the future, ALWAYS include a clause that the tenant is responsible for pest control.
