Northridge, CA asked in Landlord - Tenant for California

Q: I am 66 years old and have bed bugs bad. Even though the manager/owner will not spray again do I have a legal problem?

I have lived here for over 25 years I did not have bug problems until last year after the lady below me passed away and had bed bugs. They sprayed, however, the bugs just came upstairs and now I am infested. I was sprayed twice and they had to pay some people $600 to move my furniture an inch away from the walls. He said that was coming out of my deposit. Now I cannot lift furniture at almost 67 years old and then he said have someone from my church help. However, they do not live here and it isn't their problem. I hardly get any sleep. Please Please HELP.
