Could someone please let me know who I can contact, a building inspector or whoever, if I am in an unsafe residence and the landlord refuses to do anything
I've tried CASE but they said they can't do anything. I need someone to come inspect the property
and verify that it is unsafe and uninhabitable and the landlord must make repairs and find us alternate housing during the repairs or allow us to break the lease and get our deposit back
We are renting an apartment where tiles have now fallen off the ceiling, windows have fallen off, there is major termite damage with holes around the door frame and floor boards, there is black mold all around the bathroom and it's behind the walls, which have started to cave in, so nothing will clean it. We've taken pictures, we've shown the landlord, but nothing happens. He keeps saying he will send someone to fix it, then sends in a person to replace one ceiling tile and nothing else
Right now we have no money to move to a new place unless we can get our deposit back, and do not have the money to hire a lawyer
Is there any government building inspector we can get to come out who will rule the residence is uninhabitable? I have no idea who to contact and every time I call some government office I get passed on to a different agency and nobody can seem to give me a straight answer.
This is important as there are children living in the property and one was almost injured by one of the falling tiles, and the other is in danger of climbing out the window which will not close and keeps falling off, and there are no bars on it.
