    Hi triceratops:

    Depends where you live. in Ontario. Canada, unless the Landlord agrees, he can hold you financially responsible until the unit is re-rented.

    But if this happens, and if the Landlord did not adequately try to solve the bb problem, the tenant could apply the`the Landlord/Tenant Board to end the tenancy. It would be up to Board to decide to agree with the Landlord or Tenant.

    So you probably need to get legal advice to determine this.

    For anyone in the Province of Ontario the website is: http://www.ltb.gov.on.ca

    That's a legal question. Blackheart pointed you to additional information for her area.

    Probably the best bet is a tenant right's group in your area for that question.

    If you read the FAQs, it provides the pros and cons of moving during an infestation and options (vikane, heat treatment, etc).
