Apartment and Vacation Rental Bed Bug Claims

Landlords of apartment and home rentals constantly shift the responsibility of a bed bug problem to the tenant. This tactic is nothing new and our Bed Bug Attorneys are prepared to fight on your behalf.

The process of getting your landlord to compensate you for your pain and suffering, inconvenience, property damage and out-of-pocket expenses can be complex and aggravating. Bed bug claims are constantly challenged by landlords and insurance companies.   Insurance companies and landlords will retain the services of an entomologist or exterminator to review a bed bug claim seeking an opinion that the tenant is responsible.  Additionally, landlords and their insurance companies may interview you in an attempt to have you sign a release acknowledging you are the responsible party for the infestation. Keep in mind the origin of the infestation is a crucial issue.

Our bed bug attorneys have handled bed bug claims against many apartment complexes, individual homeowners, various different types of property owners and management companies and are familiar with all of their tactics and know how to counter their defenses of your claim

There are several codes, ordinances, regulations and statutes governing your State that require owners and operators of premises to keep their property free of insects and vermin such as bed bugs. Some States require land owners to keep every part of a dwelling and the land in good repair, clean and free from vermin, rodents, dirt, filth, garbage or other things or matters dangerous to life or health. Most States have a warranty of habitability, which requires the landlord/property owner to make sure that the premises are fit for human habitation and for the uses reasonably intended.

Apartment and Vacation Rental Bed Bug Claims

Several different causes of actions may be appropriate in bed bug lawsuits. The cause of action depends upon the State in which the incident occurs. The most frequent causes of action are negligence, battery, fraud, fraudulent concealment, punitive damages and consumer protection action violations.

Bed bug lawsuits are commonly brought under the legal theory of Breach of the Warranty of Habitability or Negligence. In most States, landlords are under a non-delegable duty to maintain their property in a safe condition. Furthermore, owners or managers of an apartment complex owe residents and their guests the duty of providing housings free of any dangerous conditions.

A property manager or landlord is often found to have notice of the presence of Bed Bugs where the following existed:

  • Incident reports from current or past tenants
  • Extermination reports of bed bugs in apartments
  • Apartment or home rental reviews on the internet made by prior tenants, which reference bed bugs
  • Testimony of past and current employees or tenants
  • From the tenant herself/himself who complained to the property manager  that bed bugs were found in the residence
  • Having no integrated pest management plan in place
  • Failing to follow pest procedures and protocols
