Is it Legal To Sell a House or Condo with Bed Bugs?

Yes, it is legal to sell a house or condo with bed bugs. Real estate disclosure laws in most states require the seller to inform the buyer of an infestation; however, there are loopholes. There are states where sellers are not required to complete a disclosure statement but instead pay a penalty to the buyer. Some disclosure statements are also so vague that a bed bug infestation is not a specific question.

These disclosures differ from state to state; you can find your requirements at your local health department. You can also contact the building manager if selling a condo, as condo disclosures may differ from selling a home.
