?? Re pest control and renters??
For the first time we are landlords, so I want to ask this question.
Who do you think is responsible for pest control?
We had a pest control contract before our house was rented so our tenants had one month of pest service. I told her after that they'd be responsible. Now they keep asking us to help them with the cost of pest control.
The house is in Georgia, and we provide termite control so I'm just talking coachroaches. We have rented in the South before and we always paid for our own pest control.
But I want to do what is right and what most people do, so I thought I'd ask here.
And we do have a lease, I didn't check if it is stated but I know for certain that we never implied that we would cover it.
I am fairly certain that this is the first time they have lived in the South so this may be new to them.
