How can I report a housing issue regarding 'Rent Raised' when he won't fix the place and the place is in poor health?

Place has cockroaches, bedbugs, plumbing problems, managers every month raising the rent and not fixing the problems. A lot of money from my pockets and burned.

If I were you I would look at maybe getting a different place...

Well it doesn't sound like a healthy environment to live in and I'd be more concerned for my health than trying to lower the rent. Also do you really want to keep dealing with a person like that? I know the economy still sucks but I don't think you need to live in a house like that. I would push more for the managers to fix the roach and bed bug problems and whatever else first and then go after him/her for the rent. So with that being said call the the County health dept. if you're not willing to move and the managers aren't willing to fix things. The health department should help you get these things resolved. Good luck with everything.

Does your state have a rate review board? There are also gov agencies to contact if you look in the blue pages of your phone book

County Health or a house inspector, a friend did that route and they had to fix things or get a huge fine, and couldn't raise rent in retaliation for it either

How about I just file a complaint with the Dept. of Regulatory Agencies (D.O.R.A.) Sounds nasty? Well this place I'm living in is nasty.
