I recetly moved to London in a furnished appertment. Since the first night me and my girlfriend got red spots on our skin, we assumed from bed bugs. My girlfriend went to the hospital and got a doctors statement.
What we found out was that the previous tenants also had issues with bedbugs and they left because the problem was not solved. We rented the room the day they left.
Before signing the contract, I did not ask the agent wether or not the room had bedbugs.
Am I right to believe the furnished room should have been habitable but this was not the case? Which would provide legal basis for action against the landlord?
