Moved into a Bed Bug Infested Apartment

Many tenants are surprised and disgusted after being moved into a bed bug infested apartment. Apartments in Maryland are required to be free of infestation at the time of a new tenancy. When renters are bitten, and see bed bugs, shortly after moving in, it is a red flag that there is a pre-existing infestation of bed bugs.

In this case, within several days our clients began to see and notice bed bugs, as well as itchy red bites. They reported the infestation to management, who took their time scheduling inspections and treatments.

However, after speaking with their neighbors, they learned that the prior tenants as well as the neighbors had also experienced bed bugs.  Of course, had the leasing agent disclosed the history of infestation, our clients would never have agreed to move in harm’s way.

When the infestation persisted due to the property manager’s negligence in having the necessary treatments performed, our clients searched Google for bed bug lawyers near me, and found Whitney, LLP.

When our clients called, we discussed their experience, and based on our experience filing lawsuits quickly realized that they had a strong case. after filing a lawsuit, we investigated and obtained all of the pest control, maintenance and other property records and confirmed that a past infestation in the same unit and adjacent units had not been properly treated.

In fact, a pest control company had recommended to the property management company that the apartment be inspected before moving tenants in, but the management company did not do so.  After finding that piece of information, the case settled.
