Tenant help!

By Becca

We are a family of five living in Jackson, MI. We rent a horribly kept house and have constant problems getting repairs done by our landlord. There is no association in our area to help resolve conflict between our two parties. Can anyone refer us to an agency that provides tenant help that may be able to give us some advice on forcing our landlord to do reapirs and do them correctly the first time?

I have to laugh because you’ve already found the agency that helps with this kind of thing. The Rental Protection Agency is the agency that will help you. All you need to do is file a complaint. Next time you look at your post, look towards the top of the page and click on the “File Complaint” link, wa-law!

Are you serious… to put it in perspective… that’s like me going to McDonalds and asking where I could buy a hamburger. Sweet-heart, you already found what you’re looking for.

Brian and Richard, you guys are mean. Maybe she’s just super stressed, did you think of that? Becca, the Rental Protection Agency is the national agency that protects you from landlord or rent problems, they can help you get those repairs made.
