Generally, the landlord is only liable for property damages and out-of-pocket costs when you can show that there was negligence on the landlord’s part — that the landlord didn’t take reasonable steps to eliminate bedbugs. This could include a situation where the landlord knew that there was an infestation in a neighboring apartment or apartments and failed to take appropriate steps to stop the infestation from spreading into your apartment. If you have proof that the original infestation or an ongoing infestation is the result of the landlord’s negligence — that the problem was caused by the landlord’s failure to act in a reasonable manner to address the bedbug problem — then you might have a claim for compensation for out-of-pocket costs and property damages related to bedbugs.
