You're ridiculous. I think it's relevant to know the background of the family because if nothing else it helps paint the scenario and understand that the solution isn't just as simple as them going to stay with their relatives in the next county or something. I also suspect if she hadn't mentioned it you'd also be the first to say "tell them to go stay at their mom's place!"

I agree with others that you should look for a new apartment. I would think that if your landlord is being soft on your neighbors, he will also be soft on you and let you out of the lease. Your apartment sounds like a dangerous place to live, with mold and everything else you describe.

I would also call the numbers others have provided, though I can see why you're hesitant about taking an action that could leave a family homeless.

But definitely take charge of your own situation and find a new apartment.

Continue to withold rent and move out. Make sure you have a hard copy of your complaint. I hope this helps.

The landlord is being extremely soft on them since they will be homeless and hasn't made a strong effort to get them out. We have withheld rent but I would much rather be able to live in my own apartment. Surely they can't just refuse forever, this has to be some sort of health violation? Any advice is appreciated.

Call the Dept. Health & Human Service as well as Building Code Enforcement. And ignore the a-holes on this site.

It has to be clarified there is a pattern to be aware of. Different cultures create new sets of problems that are not common in their new land. One such problem is walking or strolling in the street instead of the sidewalk. Insurance companies are tuned in to this sort of thing like illegal apartments, which can cause fires. The property owner is ultimately responsible, too bad innocent people suffer the consequences though. We cannot close our eyes to the inevitable.

..way to show sympathy assholes. Is this not supposed to be a public forum where people can come to their neighbors for assistance? Real neighborly.

Some people do not realize how fortunate they are even after this storm.


(obviously not directed at everyone)

If the landlord refuses to let you out of the lease and/or won't return your security deposit, gather as much evidence as possible (i.e. pictures) of your apartment's uninhabitability and move out anyway, then deal with it in the courts later. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but how much longer can you continue to live this way?

The health / building department can have the place declared unfit for habitation.

Really? You don't know this person's situation and yet you know enough that they shouldn't rent in ANY circumstances? Rent v. buy is not a black and white issue and depends on many factors.

It seems like there are a lot of these situations popping up (I have another thread that went nowhere about a friends whose landlord is more concerned about saving his floors by putting heat over 120F in the place, rather than dehumidifiers and cleaning baseboards, replacing drywall and insulation from the flood waters which was sewage water). It seems so many issues are popping up where landlords aren't doing what they should.

I hope people can help guide us here....
