Hi Mommas. Can you please tell me what you think I should do or what you would do?
I live in the state of CA for what its worth. We have been renting a home since July and our landlord is a complete Slumlord. She is failing to provide heating for my family though we have told her we need a heater, she says she will put one in and doesn't. We still have trash along side of our house and in the back yard from previous tenants that she was to dispose of. She has attempted to build a small room in the back yard that she is refusing to insulate now she didn't pull permits and a neighbor has reported it to code enforcement, we are awaiting for them to come, im sure we will be told to tear it down because we looked at it and it is NOT safe for anyone to even walk around in. I called my landlord today because i have found so many roaches and these little white worms with black heads. This isn't the way i live, I am freaking disgusted, I have four little ones, one crawling, and i'm due in december. The bath tub handles don't turn off all the way. We asked her to repair it and she said "leave it alone" that way your water wont freeze in the winter. I called her today and told her if she doesn't fix these things i am not paying rent and she threatened to turn off our water tomorrow. I am really upset, my kids are 1 year, 3 years, 4 years, and six years. I am due dec. I really don't know what to do. When we were moving in she had other furniture etc here and we didn't get to thoroughly check everything. I don't know what to do. I don't have money to move right now and I just want to get my family out. I'm so angry she is refusing to fix these things! BTW I have my money order made already for rent and put away. I dont want to pay again until she fixes these things. My husband says we will go to court if she tries to evict us but this house has become so deplorable i don't know if the cold is forcing these bugs out or what but I don't want to be here any longer than we have to be. This is just a few of the many things going on.
