Hello, My name is Jennifer and here is my reasoning for seeking everyone's help to get my family enough money raised so we can get into a new place. About 6 months ago My fiance, three young children and family dog moved into what we thought was going to be our family rental for some time. It appeared to be beautiful! The landlord seemed really cool! Month to month lease, the yard was perfect for our children and dog. Everything seemed perfect. My fiance had a great job, our kids had finally had a big yard to play in and our dog was able to enjoy the yard with the kids. How wrong we turned out to be. First few weeks were great! No complaints yet. About the second month here, we started having plumbing issues. We told the landlord but it didn't seem to phase him. Wed go to flush the toilet and it would clog, we would run the washer and our tub would back up. One night one of my children just got done using the toilet and went to flush. While flushing I had the washer in spin cycle. Worst thing imaginable happened. Our toilet flooded and while it was flooding our tub was backing up with dirty water from the washer. Our house now smelled horrible of reclaimed water and my fiance was running back and forth with water to dump outside. While my fiance was doing that, I was on the phone with the landlord trying to explain to him what was happening and all I got was... I'll be over in the morning. REALLY??!!?? That's ok...thank God for cameras. Well needless to say, he did come over the next day. He said it was to backed up and he had to call a plumber. For three days my family and I couldn't flush the toilet and all toilet paper that was soiled went into trash bucket. Well...third day plumber came and fixed the problem. Turned out our neighbor next door was having the same problem but the blockage was because she flushed her tampons. Problem goes on....YEAH OK! Following month....we noticed the carpet in our bedroom closet (where our water heater is) was wet. Told the landlord and once again....he let it ride. Now mind you...our family dog would always sleep in our room at the foot of our bed. A few weeks are passing and now the carpet not only in our closet is soken wet but now the water is spreading and ruining everything including our bed. Our bed had no boxspring just the matress. Once again we told the landlord and at this point was only paying alittle bit of rent at a time so yes we fell behind on rent. In the meantime of all this happening we realized our dog was having fun licking the wet carpet at night. Not like he didn't have water because he always did. He just loved water. Anyways...we started noticing our dog was getting sick and had to keep him from being in our room. He was acting lethargic, diarriaha, and was starting to drop in weight. My fiance decided to make a vet appt for him. Not only was the dog sick but the whole family was starting to get sick as well. The whole family that week decided it was time for a trip to the ER. at this point my fiance is upset because he's missing work days over this. He missed a total of four days in a row and needless to fired! After that my fiance was over it. He took the hospital papers to the landlord and told him to do something and get it done quick. Well that lot a fire under his ass. The next day our room was gutted, water heater removed, mold spotted. Now our room is off limits and were subjected till this very moment to sleeping in the living room. Can't move because my fiance is trying to find a job. We have no car and sadly our dog passed away. Please any help at this point will be highly appreciated. Ty and God bless R.I.P Gargamel
