I'm writing this so that no other tenent of possible renter will have to go through what my fiancee and I had to go through. The apartment we rented seemed nice at first' but right off the bat when we moved in the lease was not prepaired we moved in on may 30th. we did not receive a lease until june 15th. The lease came in the mail which we thought was very strange. But the first day of us living there we made a list of things that needed to be fixed in the apartment. there was a hole in the cabinet in the wall and there were other holes in the walls. we asked for the maintaince guy to fix them. he never did so we spent money out of our pocket buy materials to patch the holes in the walls. but the major thing was we had a leak in the bathroom coming from up above us from the apartment above us. we notified the landlord and the maintanice several times over a course of the month of june and nothing was done accept that they poked holes in the ceiling to make the water leak into the shower but that didn't work at all it still leaked over the toliet and into the floor. [continued below]....

..... Oh i guess i should mention because of the leak we have black and white mold in the ceiling. so sense the problem was never addressed the ceiling fell in and now there is a hole in the ceiling. we took pictures of the ceiling from the day it started leaking up until the hole in the ceiling. we contacted the landlord on 7/7/2013 to tell her that the ceiling finally caved in. she and the maintaince guy went on to say it is our fault that the ceiling is leaking and the landlord stated that she didn't know of such leak. which is not true because we have texts messages that we saved that she responded too about the leak and sent her pictures. she went on to call my fiancee a dirty name. we threated to call the health department and the building inspector on the property and her answer was go ahead. but now today 7/8/2013 they sent a plumber in to fix the problem; and now all of sudden since the threat now things are getting done. but we are leaving and we were asked to leave because we did not sign the lease. we refused to sign a lease when nothing was getting done or fixed around the apartment. which we have been looking for a new place anyway. there are signs posted all over the building of not hanging out in front of the building but yet people do that anyway and disturb people; and the biggest offender of that is the maintaince man! our apartment was the first floor. so anytime people have been out front they have been loud and obnoxious. not to mention the police are there every weekend of either domestic violence or fights between the neighbors. one neighbor was stabbed before the 4th of july and no one was arrested as usual the police come but never arrest anyone which i find to be quite strange. even though we are leaving and moving out to a better place we are still notifying the building inspector and warning people about this place. no one should have to live in a place where their health and safety are an issue everyday and weekend. i will be gladly to give them there keys back to this dump. i would rather live in a cardboard box then live in this building and have a landlord who is disrespectful and blames their tenenats for their issues that they can not take responsibility for.
