  • land lord, but it doesn't hurt to take some preventive steps yourself. get some mouse traps, and if that doesn't work & you need a professional terminator, call the land lord.

  • I would think it would be the landlord's responsibility.

  • i also agree try the traps.. ( i wouldnt do glue traps there horrible slow death ) t rex is a good thing. also dryer sheets help they hate th smell. steel wool to plug any holes there coming threw. if all eles fails call the landlord and take the next step..but least if he says did u try..u can say yes i did.

  • Look in you lease. The pest problem usually lands on you.

  • I was living in a rental townhome when I was single and had a mouse that was getting in through the dryer vent (or so we found out later). My dh (bf at the time) plugged the hole and we set out mouse traps to get rid of it. The landlord may have had a responsibility to take care of it, but it was in MY house, getting in to MY food - I had a lot more at stake to get rid of it ASAP than my landlord did.

  • If you need to call in outside people then the landlord, but it wouldnt kill you to put down traps.
