Nashville-Davidson, Tennessee 2021-07-23 17:36:00 –

Nashville, Tennessee (WSMV)-A woman in Davidson County contacted News 4 after trying to get her apartment to do something about Roach.

“They come out of the outlet, from the ceiling,” said Christie Carroll.

When Carroll moved to an apartment in Davidson County six months ago, she thought she would be alone.

“After working 18 hours and being on the waiting list for over a year, I was thrilled to get an apartment and put the roof over my head again,” Carroll said.

Instead, she says she got some unwanted roommates.

“They fall between the walls at night,” Carroll said.

Carol tells News 4 that these crawling creatures have been hijacked.

“I don’t want to pick up 30 cockroaches from the carpet. Big cockroaches! I can’t even see small cockroaches,” Carroll said.

Carol has notified her complex several times, but she says the pests will not go away.

“It’s’what will I do next? Carroll said.

So she contacted News4 and we contacted the apartment. Cockroaches can be difficult to get rid of, according to lawyers, who have been to the apartment every week since June, as cockroaches breed fast and can develop “cross resistance” to multiple types of pesticides. ..

So what do you do if you are in a situation like Carol? Legal Assistance Zack Oswald reported the problem and said he always had it in writing.

“This is what I told you, as they can prove, two weeks later, but nothing has been fixed yet,” Oswald said.

If that doesn’t work, Oswald says he can take the landlord or real estate owner to court, but warns that it can be expensive. That’s why documentation is important to get help.

Carroll said she was finally excited to have her place. Now she just doesn’t know what she’s trying to do.

A real estate owner’s lawyer told News4 that he had decided to offer Carroll a release from the lease without the penalty of early dismissal. But Carroll says she doesn’t make much money and it’s hard to find an affordable life in Davidson County.
