Legal Question

Asked on: 8/07/10, 4:09 am

What are the laws in NC concerning bedbugs? If I own a rental property and a tenant has bedbugs, am I legally responsible to pay for pest control, reimburse them for furniture thrown out, let them break their lease without penalty, etc? The tenant in question has lived in the unit for over 4 months with no bug problem until now. I certainly did not put bedbugs in their apt, so it seems to me they or a guest of theirs, brought them in.
