    I was standing in the rental office and overheard the management having a conversation with a tenant stating that the building was infested with bedbugs! The office lectured how bed bugs are transported to the apartments. They said that all renters sign a waiver regarding bedbugs during the rental process, and if bed bugs are suspected the tenant is required to notify the management immediately. OMFG! They evidently have a problem if waivers are required! I am out of there!

    When driving a car people wear seat belts in case of an accident not because of an accident.

    Having a policy in place is sensible practice not an indication of a previous issue. Sadly systems are often only developed once a previous issue has become painful enough to feel they are needed but this is not always the case.

    I have even worked with a few hotels to ensure that new builds opened bedbug free and remained that way.

    In short you are better off staying in a place with policies than without them.

Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about pro

    Wow. At least luck was on your side in that you overheard that there was a major issue in that building BEFORE you moved in, as had you not known you likely would've ended up in a world of sh-t.

    .....I am NOT an expert.....

    Any advice i give here is based solely on my own personal experiences in dealing with bedbugs & other household vermin.
