Me and my 5 year old son had a week left on our stay at the homeless shelter; I had to find a place asap.
I drove by my old apartment complex and noticed unit #1 was vacant. We got the apartment and moved in. Same landlord so I felt ok even though the apartment was in terrible shape; it needed a make over. My landlord instructed me to contact the maintenance man and have him start repairs. 11 days in.....nothing.


I paid a $900 deposit on a one-bedroom $650 apartment that was infested with cockroaches when I moved in. Landlord promptly tried to blame me for the infestation and does not respond to certified letters asking for pest control. Neighbors refuse to let pest control serviceman in, and so landlords refuse to fine them or force them to let him in, so nobody even tries. I am currently living with fighting cockroaches constantly and nothing helps much because the neighbors share walls with me and they are infested.

My son lives in Glendale Ca. with his other mom for shook and visits me on weekends. When he comes he plays in the play area right out my door, usually soccer with the kids in my complex. We have a new Manager who had without my knowledge last November told the kids they could not play there because a window had been broken and they had to go to the park next door which was not safe. I looked outside and saw my son was gone called him and went to the park immediately where the boys from the complex were including my son were playing soccer.
