Live in an unsafe HUD home

Post by Butter »

I really need help in what to do about landlord for my HUD supported apartment. We have been getting very sick, I kept smelling a overpower smell of mold, told landlord. It is so bad and not safe. The landlord never came so I paid $500 for before to find the problem, they found serious water leak under house. There was a pond of constant water and said there is a serious constant leaking problem and would damage and told us this is a hazard and to get out but we have no $ to do so.
It’s been 2 months and still nobody to fix the safety issues. I called health and sanitation department and he said it don't look good and called landlord and said needs to be fixed along with the backed up sewer with fecal and toilet paper that my 6 year old grandson was playing in, that how I found that. Been 2 months and no word. I been deathly sick and had to have CAT scan, they found a tumor in my lung that could possibly be mold, fungus bacterial. I have to have biopsy. We have headaches, bloody noses, and fever, too much to list.
My doctor wrote letter to HUD and said I’m severely suffering from mold toxify and need to move now. Well, my caseworker was very mean to me and said she needs proof there is mold, even though I had before "the biggest construction comp in the world" wrote a letter saying from his readings and the pond of water under home said as long as this has been leaking there very well could be alot of toxins from this but he said they need to take to lab to test but I can't afford that.
It’s so obvious how bad this is and he was in home for 15 minutes and hit him on not feeling well. I can't believe the landlord don’t want to fix his rental so he can continue to lease in the HUD program. We have done EVERYTHING we were asked to do plus some but nobody wants to do what is just right. This killed my Siamese and my dog is very sick with a severe cough, the vet said the reason my cat pulled his hair out till he bled was due to a very toxic allergy. I’m very scared and frustrated that this landlord and HUD are just leaving us here to die and are treating us badly because we had to complain. I don't get how people can be so uncaring. I wish they would come sit in the home for 15 minutes and see how they feel. Please somebody help me find a safe place to live or fix this apartment, I have 3 beautiful children and grandbabies I want to see grow up, the thought of moving sounds horrific because I’m so weak and sicker from this mold. I been running fevers everyday now for month. Thank you so much for reading this and hope I hear back from someone soon, have a great day and that you kindly:

Hello, I am a resident in the state of Georgia and I live in a HUD home which I think is unsafe. My address is Marietta GA 30067. I am requesting to have some assistance in paying my rent this month. My rent is $676 but the HUD complex is saying I owe $930 because of a credit I was supposed to receive that was never placed on my account. The complex recently was bought out and the office staff change their policy has also change and the don’t allow arrangements on the rent. I am at risk of getting evicted from the HUD home if the balance is not paid by December 3rd, please assist me with this issue. Or help me move to a safe home. I have 2 kids that don’t deserve to be put out, but it been really hard these past month to support ourselves. Thank You so much for hearing me out, if you need to reach me.

that is the Cobb County area. Maybe a non-profit or charity in Marietta can get you into a new, safer home. Or maybe they can help you pay the back rent on your HUD home. Try this for rent assistance in Cobb County.

Good evening, I am writing because I am extremely concerned. I recently moved to a location that is unsafe, but managed by HUD where I am not safe. I have a security camera outside but constantly people are surrounding my door and I do not feel safe. There are drugs, guns etc. around my neighborhood. I am stuck in that place because I do not have enough money to pay for a security deposit in a different location. I am a single mother with three kids, my husband left us without financial help. I am looking to move to a safer area, I am a single mother working on getting a diploma so that I can become a bilingual teacher. I do have a job, but I do not make enough money to sustain my kids thus the unsafe HUD home. If I can get help with a security deposit and one- or two-month assistant with paying my rent, I can get back on my feet. I am not sure where to ask for help, everywhere that I call, I do not get help that I am looking for.

If your home is unsafe, then look into other HUD homes or section 8 voucher programs. They have many options out there. Most counties/cities have an agency to call. But we have local states phone numbers here, on the website. Find applications for section 8 HUD homes.

Hi my name is Antoinette. I am a single disabled female. I am on a fixed income and live in a HUD property that is falling apartment
I bought a SUV this summer from a private party. He hid a lot of information from me and lied about my vehicle.
I bought it and I blew a rod through my engine. THEN came to find out that it had other problems such as the back differential is going out. So then I lost my job and can't move with a job and not even HUD will help me.
The previous owner showed me that the tags were good until summer of 2024. After I bought it, I came to find out the tags ran out in July.
He had fake tags on it. Now I have a truck that isn't legal and it doesn't run. Now, finding out that I have to move.
I talked to the landlord to fix the home, no luck . I notified the national HUD hotline about the unsafe hose, no luck. I have tried contacting churches near me, no response or emails that don't function. I tried contacting the salvation army and they told me they don't have the funding.
I have tried applying for new up to date housing, HUD, section 8....I'm not on the list.
I don't know where else to go, who to ask for assistance. I don't have family or friends anywhere near me or have the space or money to help me.
Please help if possible. I'm truly scared that I will be disabled and homeless as the HUD home is unlivable. Thank you in advance.

Hello,
My name is Ciara and my apartment had a bad fire in it last month, and the landlord never fixed it now it is not safe. It was a HUD apartment. The majority of all of my belongings were ruined due to fire, smoke, or water damage. I am writing today to see if your organization provides any assistance for individuals affected by fires and trying to rebuild their lives after. If not, I would really appreciate if you have any information about any other organizations that may offer this type of assistance other than HUD that is not helpful. Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
