Moved In - Infestation Of Bedbugs

Recommended Posts

We have moved into a flat and have been bitten to sh1t by what turns out to be bedbugs - we thought it was gnats. We've had to evacuate the bedroom and move into the living room.

I phoned the council and they told us that the freeholder is responsible.

What are our rights? Is it our responsibility to pay for pest control?

Thanks.

Contact your landlord and see what he says...

Then i would probably buy a new bed...

There are commercial insecticides to kill bedbugs...best one is a smoke generator which produces smoke for up to 15 minutes and penetrates cracks etc...

dont know how it will affect the rest of the flats though...

The landlord is sending exterminators around monday or tuesday. We are moving out and have bagged up all machine washable fabrics for washing at 50 degrees. Unsure about what to do with remainder suits etc.. Buggered if I'm paying hundreds of pounds of dry cleaning.
