Owner, Zenobie Omarali even lowered the rent for her tenant since she know her personally. This past winter, her tenant, Zeyadh Moose ask Omarali to rent a pest control to get rid of bed bugs and even asked to replace his mattress. The owner agreed.
Little did she know that this tenant is subletting her unit in Airbnb. According to The Star, Moosa told her that the bed bugs “came through the walls, and it’s my fault.”
What’s more shocking is the fact that the unit had been subletting on Airbnb for up to $200 a night.
