  • Call the landlord and file a complaint

  • You're in an apartment, I would think the manager is the right place to start. :)

  • Call your building manager. They should do something about it. Also, does your city have code enforement? Maybe they could do something depending on what your city code is. What about the heath department? I don't know if they will do anything, but it never hurts to call and see.

  • Oh, that is bad. At times I get a little behind in the cleaning,but that is gross. Um, maybe have an intervention, or nicely find away to tell her that her poor house keeping is affecting your home too. I had a friend who would clean another friend's house for them, because their house was gross. Not that is a good solution, way help foster poor cleaning. If you can call a pest control company and have them spray your apartment to get rid of the roaches. Good luck.

  • Yuck. When I was younger and still lived with my mom, we rented an apt for a while and there were some nasty people in the apt next to us and it was so bad that bugs were coming into our side even though we are SUPER clean. We ended up being able to break our lease with no issues once the management discovered how filthy the neighbors were.
