Re: “Commission recommends changes in landlord-tenant law

I was medically retired from the Army due to injuries sustained in Iraq. I was stationed in Germany and my wife wanted to move back home to Arkansas so, so we found some apartments, which is Chapel Ridge of Sherwood and they seemed nice and quiet. The staff was all smiles and we have police officers who live out here also so we thought it was perfect. I had no furniture or anything for the first month because it was in storage at a military facility. I signed my lease, paid my deposit and got the keys and everyone was all smiles. I immediately went to my new apartment to began our new beginning. I unlocked the door and went inside and noticed that the carpet was dirty, I told my wife that we would just get it cleaned ourselves and not to worry about it. I then went into the master bedroom and look around and killed 4 roaches, I went to the kids bedroom and killed 2 more roaches. I went to the kitchen and I saw a roach go behind the stove. So we we over to the office and informed Chella, who is the mananger, that there are roaches in the apartment. The first thing she said to me was "They probably came in with your belongings". I was shocked and I told her that all of my things that I have with me are still on the back of my truck and the truck is stilled parked outside of the office so that statement can't be true. That was in mid August. We then told them that we have mold in our apartment in November and I was told by the maintenance men that its not mold, it's just mildew, because the way your apartment building is sitting it doesn't get any sunlight. We then wrote a letter to Chella the manager about the mold situation and she stated the same thing "It's not mold, it's mildew. And she then said that its our fault and we caused it, but in the next sentence she said exactly what the maintance man said about the building not getting any sunlight. She was real mean about the situation and she is still angry. Recently in March I was taking my trash out and she came out of the office and yelled across the parking lot telling me that I need to pay her 16 dollars by the close of business. I went to the office 3 days before that when I got a letter on my door stating that I owed 16 dollars but I didn't know why. The assistant manager didn't know why either and she said she would ask Chella about why. I paid her the sixteen dollars and I never said anything about how unprofessional she was. Today, April 1 2013, we called them to clean the mold and they looked at us like it was our fault. They took pictures and spray painted the wall and tomorrow they are going to come paint over the mold. As a former Soldier who has traveled this globe serving our Country, if my Commander would go nuts if he knew me and my family was living in these conditions and he would make us move immediately, and here in Arkansas I have no rights. My son is 8 years old and has asthma and Chella knows this because I told her in a letter. I also have a 6 year old son and a 17 mon. Old son. Please hurry up and push this change through because we don't have the money to just pick up and leave.
