1 Year Bedbug History: No
Landlords in NYC are required to file an annual bedbug report with the city and state whether the building has had a bedbug infestation in the past year. We found no recent bedbug reports from these city filings.
Litigation History: Yes
Evictions: 0
Eviction information is pulled from NYC housing court records. There are no legally registered evictions associated with this property.
Rent Stabilized Units: No
We look at annual DHCR registrations to determine if a building has rent-stabilized units. It is possible that a landlord missed an annual registration and therefore the info is not reflected on openigloo. We update this data when the city updates their records.

Once you submit an anonymous review for one of your rental experiences, you will gain access to the entire openigloo platform
