My apartment is infested with COCKROACHES- PLEASE HELP!
I just moved into my new apartment, I have not even finished unpacking. I have worked hard to get this apartment for my son and I and I have recently discovered (About 2 days after move in) that the apartment is infested with roaches!!!! WHAT ARE my legal rights as a tenant? Is it legal for a landlord to allow you to move in and not tell you that the place is infested with cockroaches? I know there is no way to get rid of them, not for good, so are my son and I stuck to live in this horrible place? I have not been able to sleep at all there completely disgusted and worried about them crawling on my baby boy or myself at night.

You may file a complaint against your landlord for misleading you because you won’t rent a place if it’s not conducive to living. Or propose an agreement that you’ll call a pest terminator to rid the place of roaches and have him shoulder the expenses.

My apt is also infested I called 311 but my Mom yelled at me to not file a complaint I told my super n just emailed his wife I even sprayed my walls with clorox n they go n than they come back any where I killed them off of I feel like I’m living in hell! I’m scared for my safety, my pets n my mother I lived in this building many yrs n there were always problems with something when they transferred our apt they did not fix everything up the only thing they did when we moved in is paint while we were all moved in! My super apt is gorgeous it looks like it don’t belong in this building n if him n his family is living in safety than everyone else should also. They just don’t stop coming their on my clothes, refrigerator, shower etc every part of my apt I have not seen on my bed or dogs I’m exhausted n frustrated i feel like I won’t be able to sleep with knowing this.
