I am a Veteran and rent an apartment
that was found to have mold in it here in Texas. For two weeks, the landlord/persons in the office did nothing to address the issue. I expressed I would try to move out by last Friday, but I didn't commit to that. I am ill and can only work so many hours in a day before I get tired and have to lay down to sleep. During this course of time, I was referred to the Evictions
Officer on the complex and there was a yelling match over the phone; asked her to lower her voice as I would and was told she didn't have to stop shouting at me. Today, that person and another manager come to the door of the temporary apartment they forced us into and tell me that if I am not out by 5:30 p.m this evening, they will turn this situation into something ugly and where I don't want it to go. I have tried to call the Justice of the Peace but no contact made. What can I do? Feel like I am being harassed.
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I am El Paso, TX
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: No, not that I know of. I am a HUD
/VASH Voucher holder and have had some assistance from my counselor. I feel like I want to file a case against them.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: This situation has caused stress and angst beyond anything and I am just seeking relief.
