Rentokil understands the sensitivity of a pest infestation in a tenanted property and the need for an urgent response and absolute discretion. Whether your real estate manages strata, commercial or residential properties, our expert technicians can plan preventative inspections, helping protect all investments.

It is essential for property managers to ensure profitability, asset preservation, and housing quality of managed properties. Their role as a link between owners and tenants involves balancing often conflicting interests.

Potential impact of a pest infestation

  • Complaints that often lead to rent reductions

  • Termination of contracts

  • Voids leading to revenue loss

  • Compensation claims

  • High cost of delayed pest control treatment

  • Maintenance and repair costs

  • Tarnished reputations of the owner and property manager

Preventing undesirable flatmates

Any pest infestation involving rats, mice, moths, fleas, bedbugs, beetles and wasps severely tests relationships with tenants. Rent reductions can result, as the courts consider pest infestation to be a serious defect in rental properties.

Property managers need to act quickly at the first sign of a pest problem to prevent an infestation spreading throughout the property and neighbouring buildings. Cockroach and rodent populations can expand explosively, spreading to infest entire properties in no time.

Pests also pose a serious health and safety threat with the potential to transmit pathogenic germs and cause extensive damage to equipment and buildings. Rodents gnawing on wires, for example, can short-circuit electrical systems.
