Good morning! Now that I have your answer, I can work on your question. Is your landlord asking you to pay for bed bug extermination?

Lawyer: Edward Young,

Failure to comply with your lease may constitute a violation and provide a basis for terminating your lease. Written, dated communication with your landlord is essential to protect your rights.

Your landlord must remedy the bed bug problem IF:

  • You inform your landlord in of the infestation in writing, and
  • You are not late on rent payments, and the infestation was not caused by you or your guests.

Do you have a copy of your lease and does it have bed bug addendum, certifying that the apartment you are renting is free of bed bugs?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
