Upon moving into my apartment i informed my landlord i have never lived with pests, that i am afraid of them, and i did not want the apartment if there was a problem. He assured me there was not a problem and even said he keeps the building on the up and up and there has never been a roach problem. I asked him again before i signed the lease if he was sure because i am terrified of bugs once again he assured me there was no problem i had nothing to worry about.
Well a few weeks at the apartment which by the way is a very clean unit and i am a perfectionist so i clean the walls the ceiling everything is nice and clean in my unit the building is in a nice neighborhood and is a nice brick builing with 6 units. Anyway a few weeks in i started to see a baby roach here and there i thought nothing of it but did inform the landlord. He in return sent over his friend to spray the building.
That helped for a couple of days then the roaches were back at it again one night i killed 15 to 20 of them and as you can imagine could not sleep they kept coming from the bathroom ceiling. I immediatly informed the landlord once again he said he would send over his friend when his freind got some free time from work
The friend finally came by and sprayed this time the landlord passed out a can of knock off raid to all the tenants. Since then I had still seen them from time to time but now they are back with a vengence i even found one dead in my refrigirator. I called the landlord again about the problem this time he and his friend are going to set off roach bombs WOW which they probaly got from the dollar store or menards. I am so upset i havent even been sleeping in my apartment i stay at a friends because of the roach problem i cannot afford to move right now what can i do legally if anything? Please someone HELP!!!!!
