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.
