with ANYONE who wants to see them) I have not a will NEVER return to that infested building ( even if you paid me I wouldn't!)
Second I want to say I am glad this registry obviously works Because (as I now know, thanks to the panicked and threatening phone calls the landlords wife has left on my phone) the tenant that they rented to after me found out about the apt history and obviously (hopefully) is moving out and suing them... Before they have to throw away their furniture, money, sleep and basic quality of life and health like I did during my 6 month ordeal at that apartment)
I will also add that the landlord HIMSELF - Roopnarine Surjnarine
told me in february of 2011 (after I repeatedly TOLD HIM I continued getting bites in the apt) "the only way to remedy this problem will be for you (meaning me) to move out, and we will have to leave this apartment empty until the bugs die:
Bedbugs can live for UP TO ONE YEAR without feeding (fact, google it)
I will NOT remove this post or this report until I am convinced that the landlord DID THIS.
Obviously the landlord did NOT do this, the apartment was rented, and the new tenant found out and (I suppose) is moving out.
I will add that this landlord STILL has done nothing but yelled at me, called me names, and threatened me and not apologized, or shown any concern or remorse for the situation they placed me and my pets into. For that, I am writing this follow-up and hope you will post it.
Note To the Landlords: Feel free to take me to court. I am anxiously awaiting the subpoena, I have a well-documented case complete with photos and I am sure any judge would sympathize with what I went through and award ME damages for the LOSSES I incurred due to YOUR negligence.
And due to the fact you flat out LIED (when I got the first bites in December 2010, landlord said "we have NEVER heard of any bedbugs in your apartment" - obviously that was the FIRST of many lies.
Again, since I moved out of the apt, in mid May, 2011, in a state of both panic and sleepless paranoia, I have not, and WILL NEVER step foot in your building again.
Who ever said they have seen me there, is just completely fibbing.
I will also NOT remove this post until I know for a fact there are no bedbugs in 177 Wyckoff Avenue. (or until the landlord makes good on their word and leaves that apt vacant for one year, for the bugs to die)
I suppose the only way to prove that is for the owners of this building to move in and live in the very apartments they own and rent and see if THEY get any bites.
I am so happy to be in a beautiful new apartment, which I used my own small savings to move with.
Without any assistance from the landlords who did not care that I threw my furniture away, who did not care that I suffered for 6 months, and who still do not care about what I lost and who have no idea about how immense the overall problem is in their building. Good luck with finding a new tenant.
