Bedbugs may be little, but they can cause big headaches for landlords and tenants! These creepy crawly pests are very difficult to eradicate, and if not taken care of properly, they can emerge once more; even worse, they can spread to other dwellings, especially in buildings with multiple units. Once a resident finally rids the dwelling of the miniscule pests, it is important to take proper precautions to keep them away and to notify any other residents or tenants of these infestations. New York City has experienced a substantial resurgence in bedbug activity, and that is where this particular document must be used. Complying with the New York City Housing Maintenance code, a landlord or agent is required to disclose the property’s bedbug infestation history to each incoming tenant.

The New York Bedbug Infestation Disclosure lets you do just that! This form includes the simple information about the property including the tenant’s or tenants’ names, property address, and lease term. The New York City Bedbug Infestation Disclosure also includes a series of checkboxes pertaining to bedbug infestations in the building. The form allows the landlord to check as many boxes as apply, and the landlord can indicate whether their have been previous instances of bedbugs in the unit that the tenant will be moving into. It also addresses any infestations in other units, and the landlord will indicate which floor or floors those occurred on. In each of these instances, the landlord must also disclose whether eradication measures were or were not employed. If there have been no bedbug infestations in the building at all, that can also be noted.

A landlord must disclose all bedbug infestation history before signing a lease with a tenant. This disclosure must be included in the lease agreement. Both the landlord or agent and the tenant(s) must sign this form.
