NYC Condominium Bed Bugs: Who is Responsible?

The New York Times recently published an article about who has the responsibility to take care of a bed bug infestation; the renter of a condominium apartment or the owner. A Manhattan real estate lawyer stated the condominium owner has the primary responsibility. However it gets more complex. The lawyer went on to state that the responsibilities of the owner of the unit and the board are determined by the condo’s bylaws. He wasn’t done with his explanation. Yes there is more, he went on to state that if the building contains three or more residential units then the registered managing agent could also have some responsibility for the bed bug infestation.

Sounds like a complicated court case could occur all because someone got bitten by bed bugs. I wonder if bed bug infestations are this complicated in Bulgaria. What are the legal ramifications if it turns out the bites were from spiders?

If you have NJ, NYC, the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan or Brooklyn bed bugs ask a NJ, NYC bed bugs pest control expert to destroy the odious insects.
