Bed Bug Lawyer – Landlord Responsibility for Bed Bugs

who is responsible for bed bugs - Landlord Responsibility for Bed Bugs Chinches are a tiny insect that can wreak havoc to homeowners, tenants, and landlords. They can cause significant property damage, as well as bodily injury that can ruin you personally and financially. Bed bugs do not discriminate: they can infest any home in any zip code; attach themselves to the bed of any neighborhood, and drink the blood of any person. Many people in the U.S. rent their home and depend on their landlord to upkeep the property and to ensure that things are fixed if they do not function properly. Because bed bugs can be highly contagious, they need to be eradicated as soon as possible. They require professional exterminators, and even then, they are resilient little creatures. If even just one remains, it will be able to repopulate your apartment in no time at all. That is why you need a professional exterminator to eradicate them from your apartment. But what happens after the infestation? What happens after you’ve been bit and your property’s been destroyed? You have medical bills to pay and things to replace. It has the potential to be incredibly costly. What now? According to California landlord law, landlords must maintain their property safe for all of their tenants. Bed bugs are certainly not safe critters to have in your home and so if your apartment has or had bed bugs, your landlord may be liable. If your landlord is liable, you can file a lawsuit against them to recover compensation for your damages. Proving your case against a landlord will be difficult. You need to prove that your landlord acted negligently, meaning they did not act to remove the bed bugs knowing of the infestation. You must build a good case, and to help with that our experienced bed bug attorneys are there for you.

Facts About Bed Bugs

Bed bugs may look like any other insect at first glance, but they are distinct. Knowing what to look for in a bed bug may help you detect them when they are present, or rule them out. Bed bugs come in many different species but they all have similar characteristics. The most common bed bug, the common bed bug, has six legs, a flat body, and average ¼ of an inch in length. Their color can vary from brown to red to copper. Juvenile bed bugs are much smaller – 1/16 of an inch in length – and are nearly transparent.

Bed bugs feed on blood, their body swells with the plasma and turn bright red. They do not have wings and cannot, thus, fly. They are transported by contact. People to people, people to things, things to people. They tend to stay hidden and are difficult to find unless you know where to look. Their life cycle lasts up to 10 months. Female bed bugs lay up to five eggs every single day, and their hatchlings grow into adulthood in 21 days. Bed bugs can survive for months without a single meal.

Bed bugs usually eat, and bite, and night. Most people who are bitten in their sleep do not realize they were bitten. A person’s reaction to a bed bug bite, like any insect bite, depends entirely on their immune system’s response. Red welts may form and may be incredibly painful. It is completely possible you may need to visit a medical center to receive treatment for the bed bug bites.

California Bed Bug Laws

Liability for bed bugs is difficult to pin down. Bed bugs can come from anywhere and it’s not always going to be the landlord’s fault. If you went on vacation and brought back bed bugs in your suitcase, it’s hardly the landlord’s fault you went on vacation and brought an infection to their property. In order to find the landlord liable, you must first discover the source of the bed bugs. Typically, professional exterminators are able to determine the origin of the outbreak – bed bugs like to remain hidden and only move then absolutely necessary. If it turns out that the landlord knew, or should have reasonably known, about the infestation, they will be liable. However, if they were unaware and did everything they had to to know about an infestation but it was out of their power to find, it will be harder to prove liability. For example, you find bed bugs in your apartment just after you moved in, and you suffer major bed bug bites and your sofa and mattress have been infected. Your landlord should have known about the infestation before they leased their unit to you, and they will likely be held liable for your damages. If you landlord did not know about the infestation, it will be harder. This is where an experienced Los Angeles bed bug lawyer can come in to help. They will take the circumstances and apply them to the laws that exist to protect tenants and landlords from the spread of bed bugs. Below are several laws that pertain to landlords and their responsibilities/duties to tenants regarding the little critters. Our bed bug lawyers will apply their knowledge of the law to create an excellent case and get you the compensation you deserve for your severe injuries and property damage. Civil Code §1942.5: When a tenant discovers a bed bug infestation and gives notice to the landlord, this law prohibits the landlord from retaliating against the tenant. This means, that if the tenant so much as complains about the bed bug infestation to the landlord, the landlord may not evict the tenant for any reason – even if that reason is nonpayment of rent. The landlord must then fully clear the matter. Civil Code §1954.602: Landlords are not legally allowed to show, rent, or lease a unit that the landlord knows there’s bed bugs. Land lords are not required to inspect for bed bugs, but if there turns out to be an infestation, the law considers the landlord to have knowledge of the infestation. Código Civil §1954.603: Los propietarios están obligados por ley a notificar a todos los inquilinos una infestación de chinches de la cama. Si descubre chinches y su casero lo sabía, es probable que se le considere responsable.
