Customer Question

I need to know if I can take these previous landlords to court over non repairs in my bedroom. I had a leaking ceiling for over 18 months. I had told the husband, and wife on several occasions about the problem, but it was never fixed until we moved out 6 months ago, my son took several pics of the leak. we had a lady from the county in which we lived to come out to take a look at the leak, she asked us if we wanted to cite them, but we declined, because we were afraid to lose our place to live. we were harassed many times with notices on our door to quit, and move out. we finally moved out, and they fixed the leak within 2 days during the move.
