I've been living in a goegous townhouse for well over a year now and it seems my land person just CANNOT find a descent tenant for the other one next door(there's two here). The last woman he had here admmitedly had moved into the next door unit because she had a bedbug problem at her previous address. She was evicted after 1 month and she has left those nasty bugs behind in this building. Our land person was AWARE she had a bug problem before she left, but now that I have them, I think he has amnesia. Says he has no idea what I'm talking about and is blaming it on us. So now, I'm paying for everything and he hasn't even offered to help with the cost of getting rid of them. It is VERY expensive and I think he should be responsible. What should I do? I'm exremely allergic to ANY type of bug bite and go into anaphalaxis very easily. Already had 1 Dr. visit for shots with only 2 bites. Anyone with suggestions on this landlord/tenant law??? HELP!

Sorry to hear about your troubles. I don't have personal experience with this but I read many people got Food Grade Diatomeceous Earth which is relatively cheap. Must be food grade type, and I would be really careful not to breathe it in, and to get rid of it by vacuuming once the bedbugs were killed off. It seems to be way better than other methods and way cheaper. It sucks but if it worked, and you got relief, it would be worth it. Then you could consider reporting the landlord, trying to sue, try to bill them for some of your expenses (deduct it from the rent). But that might not be worth the added hassle if that fix really works as easily as other people say. For New York tenants they can complain with the Department of Housing Preservation and Development so you would try to find the local place like that.
