That’s right, it’s time for apartment updates!
Ugh. Where do I start? A few days ago we tried to run our dishwasher. It made a horrible squealy noise before dumping water onto the floor. Awesome. Someone came out today and looked at it. The water line has been chewed through. By a mouse. This would be the same mouse problem that we’ve been bitching about for 2 YEARS. Seriously.
In fact, the mouse/mice have suddenly caused a HUGE problem. In the entire building. Out of 8 units, they’re replacing 3 dishwashers, 2 refrigerators, and a water line. NOW they’re finally sending out an inspector. Gosh. Also, they still haven’t fixed the leak in the roof/attic that causes rain in our stairwell during every storm.
So yeah, I want out of this damn lease. They don’t fix anything in a timely manner, if they manage to fix it at all, and our water bill has doubled (and according to a maintenance guy today, next month will be worse due to a water main bursting on the property last Saturday). Anyone familiar with TX tenant rights? Want to help me get out of this lease without buying it out?
