The last few years have not been very kind... In June of 2016 I had to undergo a life saving hysterectomy. Which turned into a blood clot, sepsis, then three months in and out of the hospitals ICU ordeal. Resulting in me almost losing seven months off work. I then in turn racked up credit card debt but I was going back to work so no biggie I'll just pay off my bills now. Fast forward to this morning little by little the place I rent from has been deteriorating... there is been a multitude of problems in the last three years that he keeps putting Band-Aid fixes on . The landlord informed me the first of April due to his age and medical issues that he is putting the house up for sale and would not be renewing my lease I would have to move.
Here in Chicago Illinois the housing market is absolutely insane !! (from six years ago when I was last looking to move.) No big deal I have time. WRONG!!! Due to the fact the roof has not been repaired or replaced since 1993 it has caused the roof to split and the rotting wood etc has now caused an invasion of Carpender ants !!! I work part time as a server in a restaurant, I am a single mom of an 11-year-old daughter everything I make goes to our bills and my landlord so I don't have any extra money to put away for security deposit or first months rent After groceries and essential needs. All my landlord was willing to do was buy some six dollar bug spray at the store that was harmful to pets and humans. He's also been a little illegally lighting all the common areas hallways basement and in front of the house on my electric but I would have to civilly sue him with a private attorney and pay court costs let's face it I can't even afford to move . Civil suits are definitely not Feesiable.
I guess because he feels he's selling the house he's not gonna go through the Financial costs of an exterminator. And I don't have the money to go after him civilly so I have informed him today he can keep my security deposit for this month and I will do my best to be out by next month. A friend of mine told me about this website and said what wouldn't hurt to try it and see if I can some wonderful people's help . And even though I am proud, I am never too proud to not allow my child to remain in a house infested with ants or putting my beloved cats in a shelter to go and stay with friends so I'm hoping that some good people will come across this and really help me help myself.
In advance to all of the wonderful angels that donate and help me thank you so much !! words can never express how much I truly appreciate your kindness during this extremely difficult time for me and my daughter.
