New York Gets "Landlord Bedbug Disclosure" Law

bedbugsA press release in our mailbox! "New York State Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal (D/WF, Manhattan) announced that her legislation requiring landlords to disclose to prospective tenants any history of bedbug infestation in the apartment building and individual unit within the past year was signed into law by Governor Paterson today…. Assemblymember Rosenthal (D/WF) represents the Upper West Side of Manhattan and parts of Clinton/Hell's Kitchen." You mean CLINTON/BEDBUG'S KITCHEN.

I understand that in some buildings the bedbugs are now the landlords. Does it explain what to do in that case?

Stop being racist. Bedbugs don't all go to a weekly bedbug meeting where they scheme with other bedbugs. Some of them just want a quiet life as a landlord or a convenience store owner.

Does Saudi Arabia let bedbugs be landlords? I DON'T THINK SO.

There is a thriving bedbug-american population in Saudi Arabia! You're making unsubstantiated claims about the life of bedbugs in other countries.
