Our son has lived month to month in a complex years. His fiancé

Customer Question

Our son has lived month to month in a complex for 5 years. His fiancé is very clean and their apt immaculate. Recently there has been a bedbug infestation that can be traced to one particular apt. That tenant removed all of her furniture because of it and stored everything beneath our son's apartment near the trash. When she did this, our son's problem began. They don't have the money to fight this infestation (constant washing and drying in the expensive laundry, cleaning supplies and so on) and they are fearful of notifying the landlord since they rent month to month and believe that they will be evicted, as is the general state of affairs in this building. I have read Riverside (CA) County's codes regarding this and want them to be more proactive about this, but their income is limited and locally there are few options for them. They have not talked to the owner
s of the complex because of this, nor have they spoken with the landlord.
