PGM and Son, Pest-Free Properties: The Landlord's Guide to Professional Pest Control

Calling all Landlords and Letting Agents

If you own rental properties or act as an agent for rental properties in Herefordshire and Worcestershire, you could benefit from PGM & SON Pest Control’s Landlord and Letting Agents’ “Clean Bill of Health” Service.

What is the PGM Pest Control “Clean Bill of Health” Service?

PGM & SON Pest Control offer a clean bill of health service across Herefordshire and Worcestershire. We’ll carry out a site survey prior to re-letting to check for signs of pest activity. Pest activity normally includes common vermin such as rats, mice, fleas, bedbugs, ants, mites and cockroaches.

Once we’ve given your property the once over, we’ll provide you with a “clean bill of health” certificate that you can show to letting agents / prospective tenants.

Our certificate may also prove useful for demonstrating you’ve met your responsibilities as a responsible landlord, for example, to Environmental Health, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Local Authorities and insurers.

Why do Landlords need the PGM Clean Bill of Health Pest Control Service?

The tenancy agreement may say that the Landlord is responsible for dealings with pests and vermin. However, even if your tenancy agreement contains express terms making the tenant responsible for dealing with pests / vermin, it’s likely that the Landlord will still have some responsibilities which may make them accountable for pest control.

For example, ensuring that the property is free from pests prior to letting, keeping the property in a good state of repair and addressing issues promptly and effectively so that problems don’t arise or get worse.

The Landlord is required by law to repair and maintain a property and remove all hazards.

If you let a furnished property and the problem with pests was there when your tenant moved in, then it’s likely that you and not the tenant, is responsible regardless of what the tenancy agreement says.

That’s why our clean bill of health service is important. PGM & SON Pest Control Services in Hereford can provide you with a clean bill of health certificate evidencing that the property was free from pests prior to re-let.

You can let your property to new tenants safe in the knowledge you’ve discharged your responsibility from day one.

And, we don’t just do a sweep of your property, we also give advice and recommendations on any preventative measures / proofing as part of the service.

For example, we’ll point out holes that have appeared in your property that you may not have been aware of which may give access to pests if left un-resolved.

We offer value for money pest control services to landlords and letting agents across Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
