Yes, it is a big problem and expensive one to have!!!, Bed bugs are increasingly becoming a problem within residences of all kinds, including homes, apartments, hotels, even in airplanes, and can be transported from place to place, because bed bugs readily hide in small crevices, they may accompany luggage, furniture, clothing, pillows, boxes, and other such objects when these are moved between apartments, homes, etc,  used furniture, particularly bed frames and mattresses, are of greatest risk of harboring bed bugs and their eggs,  they can be found practically anywhere, we recently have a building infested with this terrible bug that is extremely hard to treat, Since Landlords and property owners have specific legal obligations to provide safe and habitable accommodations for tenants...

The mortgage lending procedure is, shall we say, not always a walk in the park. If you're a borrower, you likely face such commands as "document this," "apply here," "provide that," and "sign here--and here and there."
