What does a video say?
This friends is my septic tank overflowing. And it was just pumped less than 2 weeks ago. We now have pictures and proof that our landlord is a slumlord. He is now saying that he "doesn't know if he wants to let us break our lease" Hmmmm, I wonder how the courts will feel about that? We have been living in a complete shit hole. He refuses to fix things. He refuses to do the the things required by law. I mean, I think we have a pretty good case here. We are good tenants. We pay our rent. And we have dumped hundreds and hundreds of dollars into this place to try and improve it. WE paid hundreds of dollars to Orkin to try and get rid of the mice infestation. Obviously it didn't work, but we still paid for it out of our pockets.
This is in our bathroom under one of the sinks. Please note the mold growing, because of him not fixing the water heater in a timely manner. Also, note the mouse trap. We have many of those.This is the closet in my sons room. Where the water heater resides. Again, note the mouse trap and mold growth. We tried to get rid of all of this ourselves but to no avail.
This is in our dining room. Right above our table. Nice right? He was supposed to fix this MONTHS ago. He never did as you can see.
You'll notice that those holes, go right up into the ceiling. Where the mice live. Oh, did I mention we have mice? We do. A fucking lot of them!
Ready for some before and afters?
Here is the ca-ca colored(and smelling) rug that used to be wall to wall for the living room and dining room.
Started pulling it up.......
And this is what we found. Here let me clean that up a bit so you can really appreciate the beauty of the flooring. Don't get me wrong, I'll take ugly over filthy smelly and damn day!
There, thats better! Miss Pandora checking out one of the stinky heating vents.
Here you can see the awful wood panels that fill the entire place. Great curtains no? They were here when we moved in. Not any more though. Oh...and the drop ceiling that our landlord TOLD us to take down because of the rotting mice up there, and then told us to put it back up...uh, no. I think not. They were covered in mouse shit, piss and rotting flesh. I'm not putting that back over our heads!
Noahs room. Before I painted.
And now for some afters....
This is monkeys room after the paint. Muuuch better.
Oh, thats right...we put new carpet down too! Look how much brighter everything is! Funny how clean carpet and paint can change an entire room.
If you ignore the freakin mess, you can see the paint. Heh..we were putting the rooms back together at this point.
Yea, its the same room. This shot is of the exact same windows up above, believe it or not.
Shot from the living room into the dining room....theres the disgusting fan with holes going into the mice cave RIGHT OVER our table!
And thats all I feel like putting up. This is a disgustingly long post as is. Not that any of you care about my slumlord drama, or this shit hole I live in.
