PA has a Supreme Court case from 1978 called Pugh vs. Holmes, that established that every residential lease has implied that the landlord will provide the tenant with a habitable residence, meaning it is protected from the elements, infestations, etc. Bed bugs is a difficult problem and I have litigate a number of these on behalf of landlords. Trying to show who caused the infestation can be the difficult problem.
