My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Michigan
I have MS and have been getting chronic infections over the last several months, once treatment stops, they come back.
I lived in apt. B for 4 months and everyone that came in said it smelled musty.
Moved 4 feet over to apt. A, been here 3 years.
Neighbor in apt. b has reported due to a missing piece towards the outside, roof area, their entire length of one wall (we share a wall) has wet/moldy walls.
LL's boyfriend tells them he can't contain the leak until spring (?)
Had them spray household bleach on it, came back this week and painted it with kilz (inspections soon).
Snow doesn't get removed (per lease), dumpster hasn't been dumped in months, both because of the claim "don't have the money"
I can NOT move at this time. I want it repaired. Can't the source of the leak be contained in the Winter? It is going to be thawing big time this next week.
Can they take action against me if I report these issues?
I'am friends with ll and family. Not sure anymore since I demanded a foot plus of snow was removed. They have a business on same property. They have the YARD PLOWED but will not plow ours, which would take less than 5 minutes/passes to do. The tenants wind up having to shovel, salt, etc. We've all tried to show LL mercy because of the financial predicament they are in. HOWEVER when it starts effecting the health of people.
Note on apt w/mold. Tenant who has lived there less than six months has had migraines for weeks.
Of the 4 units, this person and myself are the only ones with health issues. My apologies for so much info. Thank you for your time.
