  • Call the health department in the morning. Very likely there are additional code violations in this complex. I would expect to NOT move back in.

  • If you are in low-income housing, you need to report everything to the Housing Authority office, and independent inspectors will be sent out. The rules are strict, and Housing will pull its funding from places that are in violation till the minimum requirements ar met. There are laws to prevent you from being thrown out while the investigation and necessary upgrades are taking place.
