Tenant's Rent Reduced for Bedbug Infestation

LVT Number: #30986

Rent-stabilized tenant complained to the DHCR of a reduction in required services based on bedbug infestation in her apartment. She claimed that there had been bedbugs for over two years and that landlord failed to investigate the apartments below hers for infestation. Landlord argued that it had an exterminator perform service at tenant's apartment many times, that tenant had commenced an HP proceeding in housing court, that two other tenants were joined into that proceeding, and that it expected the issue to be resolved in the court case.
