We are renting the second floor rooms of our elderly landlord's house in Southern California. The elderly retired couple live on the ground floor. Recently, they have decided to have the house fumigated after minor repairs. We were informed of the dates and the necessary steps to do before the fumigation. Our rooms will be left opened once we vacate. We are concerned about burglary during the fumigation. In the fumigator's checklist, they stipulated that they "will not be held responsible for any vandalism, theft or breaking and entering."
The contract is with the homeowner, not you. It doesn't change landlord's responsibilities to you. Typically, unless your lease states otherwise, landlord is not responsible for tenant's losses from theft.
Contract is with landlord not the fumigation company. Your landlord could be liable.
