Failure To Deal With Bed Bugs

Toronto Condo News
Publication date:
August 24, 2020
Article Summary: 

The article describes a Reddit posting that shares the experience of a resident in a condo building in Toronto that failed to address a bed bug situation in its early stages. The bed bugs spread throughout the building, affecting almost every floor, and the building next door, causing significant emotional, mental, and financial stress to the resident. The property management refused to cover any costs related to the bed bug infestation and only sprayed the affected units, spreading the bed bugs further. Some residents considered taking legal action to recover the thousands of dollars in costs incurred due to the infestation. The editor notes that the responsibility to communicate and deal with the bed bug situation lies with the condo board of directors, and a best practice is for the condo corporation to pay the cost of pest control treatments and communicate with all residents about how the problem is being handled.
