In collaboration with community partners, LCBH staff attorneys have prepared a sample bed bug infestation notice and instructions for use. Please read and understand the instructions prior to using this sample letter.
Under the Chicago Bed Bug Ordinance, a tenant who sees or suspects bed bugs in their unit must notify the landlord in writing, within 5 days.
The bed bug ordinance applies to all rental units.
You should copy/paste or re-type the letter and include the date, your name, the landlord’s name, etc. where indicated.
