Do I Have Rights Related To A Louisville Bed Bug Infestation?
Louisville residents and visitors do have rights and can possibly recover monetary and non-monetary damages caused by a bed bug infestation. If you rent a home or apartment in the Louisville area, the Kentucky Revised Statutes protect you against negligent landlords who fail to prevent bed bugs or who fail to rid the property of bed bugs through professional extermination.
Under Kentucky “383.595 Landlord’s maintenance obligations and agreements,” landlords must comply with statewide building and housing codes that are “Materially affecting health and safety.” Additionally, 383.595 (1) (b) (c) requires landlords to “Make all repairs and do whatever is necessary to put and keep the premises in a fit and habitable condition,” and to “Keep all common areas of the premises in a clean and safe condition.”
When landlords fail to take measures to prevent a bed bug infestation or to treat an infestation, you suffer monetary damages such as having to replace furniture, bedding and personal possessions. Other monetary damages potentially include professional extermination and professional carpet cleaning costs, lost wages and medical treatments. Non-monetary damages include your emotional suffering, embarrassment and fear of sleeping.
