Customer Question

I have an urgent issue here in GA with the landlord of my property where I have resided for over 5 years.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?
Customer: I am a former paralegal and now a Master's educated RN and well versed on my legal rights, but need some assistance. See above...I am in Georgia.
JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?
Customer: Yes. I have a year lease that has been renewed numerous times over the last five years and am a long time resident. I have had rat and bug infestation issues since I have moved in and currently pay a monthly fee for these services that are not being provided. In addition, I have been to the local manager and to two other regional managers with problems related to this and for upkeep of the apartment.
JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: The property is in the middle of upgrading and transitioning each unit to replace all the appliances, blinds, fans, etc. I have now asked over 18 times and have been promised each time that someone will be out to measure and complete this matter. At this point, I do not have a functioning apartment at all. Most of the appliances do not work. I am currently in treatment for breast cancer.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes, there is actually just too much to even type. I have had my property stolen, my mailbox broken into and my car totaled twice while in the garage.

This is of high priority at this point for my health and safety. The management property has also initiated a new on line payment system that I cannot can utilize and I have to travel quite frequently. I have made good faith efforts and have submitted payment in a money order while in town, but it has been returned to me and eviction notices have been filed.
