The unit was infested with vermin to the point I had to move. Before moving the situation was so bad I could not sleep there. I obtained a safe place to live and moved out. Before moving out I had to sleep in my truck for several days. The vermin included, cockroaches, bedbugs and body bugs. No matter how hard I cleaned or the many times I bathed, the problem was not resolved.

I was sick for four months and spent a considerable amount of money trying to get rid of the problem. I am still trying to cope and will need further medical care.

I had to run out on the lease and told them why I was leaving. Now they want $3,000 from me for the remainder of the lease term.

I am resigned to the fact that this will end up in small claims court. I have doctor's visits and other documents to vouch for my damages.

There was a meeting of other tenants with your organization a few weeks ago. I need to become part of that group. This is not right.

I was told my former maintenance man that other people in the building have been harmed as well.

Thank you.
