Through out the time we have been here, we have only seen a power wash once, havent been sprayed for bugs in atleast 8 months, and the maintenance stopped picking up little trash off the premises making our area looking like white trash. I constantly have problems with our upstairs neighbors and nothing is ever done. For the first 8 months we lived here, Our upstairs neighbors were having sex all night everyday. Literally!! I cant sleep in my room with my fiance because I am so creeped out. Op top of that... She cant control her kid so he stomps ALL DAY LONG AND ALL NIGHT LONG...Managers will not do anything at all~! I am in the worst area of the apartments because 3 times my next door neighbor's apartment has gotten broken into, there are sex prediators and drug dealers at our apartment, Someone was looking in our apartment window at me and my daughter when my fiance was at work, the kids around here flash other kids, vandalize, and throw their trash bags in the woods... Its absolutely dreadful and wasnt like this when we moved in. Its been horrible and I dont know what to do. There have been reoccurring issues that management refuses to solve and they wont even give me coorperates phone number. I cant let my daughter play outside because the kids take her toys and wont give them back, The kids are rude and nasty, and I am so afraid to let my daughter walk outside even when we are leaving to go somewhere.... I need advice and help because we dont know what to do Should I pay rent after all the problems and issues that I have had??

We were supposed to pay our rent on the 15th and My fiance's dad said he doesnt think that we should pay it. So we havent. But we are waiting for them to issue an eviction notice.. Are we able to fight that with all the problems that we have had?? I just dont no what to do...
The court is NOT going to look kindly on you witholding rent, it is not a legal option. Your landlord is not going to be able to do anything about other people's kids, you need to call the cops.

With all the problems you want to fight an eviction? Move if it's as bad as you describe. Know that you probably will not get the security deposit back but you might be sued for balance due (last month's rent and any remaining time on the lease).

I have been at my place since 1996 and up to 3 years ago I have paid my rent on time and my water bill by the end of the month. About 3 years ago I ended up getting behind on my water bill. About a year and a half I have been paying my water bill and paying more on it and my old landlord said that was find. As long as I am paying my bill and paying something on top of that I have now receive a notice from our new landlord stating that she is going to charge me an additional 25.00 late fee onto my rent for every month that their is a balance. Is this something that she can really do?
