End of lease pest control is a service that may be required by the tenant before they vacate a rental property.

What is the reason for end of lease pest control?

Tenants will usually be required by their real estate to complete a pest control service before they vacate the rental property and hand over the keys to the real estate. The reason for this is “pest control is usually a yearly service throughout Australia” and having a pest free home will ensure no pests are in or around the home when a new tenant moves in.

Yes, you are paying for a pest free environment for the new tenant, but chances are it was done just before you moved into the property, so you move into a pest free home/environment.

Is the tenant responsible for pest control?

Yes: if you are vacating a property that you have had pets in, and sometimes yes even just when vacating the property. (Check on your rental agreement if it is required as some real estate agents’ may only ask you to do the service if you have had pets.

No: If your living in the rental property and start to have a pest control issue it should be the real estates responsibility to either get the property pest control serviced, or if it had a end of lease pest control treatment the problem will be under “warranty” service from the last pest company as usually the treatment will come with a 6-12 month warranty. (Check your rental agreement)

 

What you need to know before booking an end of lease pest control service?

What you must clearly know is that some real estate agents will require you to do a full pest control service to basically ensure the home has been left pest free for the new tenants. This way if new tenants move in and there are pests it will not be an unexpected cost for the landlord and it will come under a warranty service by the pest control company.

If you have had pets such as a cat or a dog, you may only be required to have an end of lease flea treatment.

End of lease flea treatments are required if you have had pets inside or out such as a cat or dog. This ensures the new tenant will not move into a flea infested home.

End of lease pest control

What you need to ask your rental agent?

  • Are you to provide a pest control service receipt?
  • Or are you required to provide a flea control receipt due to having pets?

This will save you money if you be specific with what the real estate requires, for example- If you pay for a full pest control service and provide the receipt to the agent, they may reject it as they may only be requiring an end of lease flea treatment.

If you have had pets, chances are you require a flea only treatment.

If you have not had pets, chances are they require a pest control only treatment.

What is the difference of the end of lease treatments?

Pest control treatment will be targeted at cockroaches/spiders/ants and include treatment internal/external and the roof void.

What is the cost of end of lease pest control?

This company actually investigates the problem instead of just spraying your place and leaving. Very HIGH knowledge and experience in what they...read more do. They took the time to investigate the cause, the source of the problem and elimnated it completely which included going through every cupboard, cracks hiding spots the lot. We had a cochroach problem in our apartment for 3 months and we had 4 different companies come out and NONE of them investigated they only sprayed. After we called PestEx, Mr. Phillips was very knowledgeable and experienced eliminating our problem entirely. We also use PestEx in our shop and both Mr Phillips and Marty are EXCELLENT in resolving and maintaining pest problems. HIGHLY RECOMMEND PEST EX. BEST I'VE SEEN IN QUEENSLAND.
