This landlord has a history of either ignoring problems, or being cheap and doing the repairs himself. I've been in the building for 5 years and in June I noticed two bedbugs in my apartment. I informed my landlord and called 311 the same day. A couple weeks go by still no response from my landlord. 311 comes with the dog and he didnt detect anything. Skip one week after that and my couch is infested (good job dog). The landlord still has yet to do anything. I intend on putting the pressure o
n him all week in the hopes that he gets professionals in there, as I cannot afford the $1000+ it will cost to hire someone myself.
Also, I believe someone else in the building has had them for a few years, but the landlord has not informed anyone else. I was told by 311 that I could not report them unless I saw one in their residence personally.
