Also found this in a Texas Real Estate GUide for Renters. This is what your landlord is responsible for in your situation. With the prolonged exposure you speak of please read #1 carefully. You and your girls may get very sick if your apartment is not repaired ASAP. You may want to call the Board of health on your landlord at this point. 9 months is a long time to have a mold problem. In NJ you are not allowed to live in a home infested with mold because of the health problems that can occur. Just some helpful information that unfortunately TOW cannnot help you with. You need to seek outside and legal help. ANd there is a Catholic Charities on the list if you send me your email I will email you the list. There are a couple of charities that you can probably get clothes and some food from.


[B]Which conditions must landlords repair?
Section 92.052 sets the basic premise for the
subchapter. The landlord must make a diligent effort
to repair or remedy any condition when:
the tenant has specified the condition in a
notice to the person who collects rent or to the
place where the rent is normally paid,
the tenant is current in rent payments when
the notice is given, and
the condition:
1) materially affects the health or safety of an
ordinary tenant or
2) arises from the landlord's failure to provide
and maintain in good operating condition
a device to supply hot water of a minimum
temperature of 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
The notice must be in writing only if the written
lease so requires. As a practical matter, all notices
should be in writing and either delivered in person
or sent by certified mail, return receipt requested.
Otherwise, proving that notice was served may be
difficult. If delivered, some verification such as a
witness or a written acknowledgment from the recipient
is needed.


Wishing you the best of luck with your situation. God bless, Kelly.

kelley texas has strong renters laws depending where you live how they are enforced mathis tx the town closest to us, has so many shanties they rent ... sad i've gone to council meetings asking why they bought the dang new truck for code enforcement if they aren't going to force land lords to give basic needs with rent, like access to electric, water, safe wiring, etx can't tell ya the answer i'd get banned for language i wasn't happy lets say

Could you consider, writing a demand letter to the landlord, for your losses, itemize them from the broken pipe and fire, and have a dollar amount, give x amount of time for him/her to respond or pay? No difference if were the other way around with damages from tenant.

You can be assured the landlord has received insurance compensation. There is a legal trail for the flood and fire I am sure. You need to take pictures (with a newspaper to prove the date) that shows the conditions you are living in. You have a solid civil case. You don't need an attorney to file. You need to gather all the information you can - it will require a little work on your part but you are due monies taken from you as well as your security deposit and possibly relocation payment. Go to your law library or see what is online for your state. I can't imagine that the court will turn a blind eye to this and allow this landlord to continue business as normal. The fact that you continue to pay rent for an inhabitable space is totally illegal. FYI, some places offer free legal assistance as well. You will have to google that for your area though. Honestly, getting out of a depressing state will probably be the best way to get out from under this nightmare. I understand you are stressed and I don't disregard that... I encourage you to use that stress energy in a more positive manner. Your children will benefit from it. I think that we are led to believe that we are under the authority of our landlords but that is not true. They can't survive without tenants and the agreement you signed says that you agree to not destroy the property willfully and they promise to provide you with a dwelling that meets or exceeds the state minimum levels.

Default Re: Basic needs needed badly please

I live in Michigan. The landlord carries insurance that covers the structure only. It is the renters (me) responsibility to carry insurance on the personal stuff in the house. So if there is a fire.flood here the structure is covered but not my personal belongings.

She may want to read her lease. This maybe outlined in there.

I know that laws vary from state to state. People offered wonderful advice that is true in their state/county/city but not in others.

I think the issue I was addressing is not that of her belongings, but that of the mold and whatnot that have not been addressed. My state also mandates that I have insurance for my belongings. Perhaps I am missing something or decided that there was a structural issue where there was not. I will step away from this thread now because it has become a hotbed and I feel that even the good intentions are being misread. I apologize for creating a thorn pile.

She moved after the flood ... so she's no longer in that apartment. The fire happened in the second apartment.

i was actually in a house a few years ago where the water heater in the attic had burst and flooded my sons room! It was pretty bad! They had to tear out all the walls in his room and windows and everything in the laundry room! Then set these big machines in there to dry it out with plastic everywhere and my kid had no room for 2 months but we had to stay there! I told my landlord im not paying rent here because we were all crammed in the living room and she never made us pay. And her insurance pays for it anyway but it was a disaster, half the house was gone lol but we made it through!
