I let a ground/lower ground floor flat out in a converted property of twelve flats. It is let out on a standard AST where there is a clause for the tenant to pay for the removal of “vermin, pests and insects, if the infestation occurs during the term”.
During the hot spell the flat was infested with a large number of flying ants which had to be removed / killed by a specialist company. As this was carried out over the weekend it was quite expensive and cost £300.
Should I as the landlord be responsible for this cost or is the AST clause above sufficient to ask for this to be covered by the tenant?
