Okay here is my story. I was going to rent a house which initially I had the choice to go month to month or sign a six month lease. I decided to go with the lease and then found a house I wanted to buy instead on a foreclosure. Since this is a long process, […]

The apartment above mine was infested with bedbugs, Management initially denied it, once exterminators came in,they said the entire building was infected even though we have had no sign of them at all in our 3 bedroom. I find it hard to believe that we have them and me and my 2 roommates are unaffected nor do we see them. Anyway, we had to pack everhting in our bedrooms into plastic bags and move everything to center of room. Because we live in nyc our bedrooms are small and this makes for a completely unlivable situation. I chose to stay with a friend outside of the city until the issue was cleard. I have had to pay 400$ exatra a month in travel expenses as well as what im sure is about $200 in food expenses since I can not stay at my own place. It has been a month and I just found out that we are unable to unpack our things for ANOTHER month. I feel it is unfair that we have to pay our rent when we can not even stay in the apartment! Is there anything that we can do?

Hello, For the past few months, We’ve been having an issue with “Nats” and “Flea Invested” and quite possibly “Bed Bugs”. The Nats are found everywhere, but main source is the kitchen and it’s either from the “Dish Washer” which we’ve never used since we moved in Nov. 2011 or it’s the sink. There was […]
