I have lived in my apartment complex since 2008, and recently I got bedbugs on march 12-2012, and I was told by manager they would have to send fax to orkins pest n put complaint in for them to come out. I was also responsible for paying $378.83. Ok they came out a week after letting the manager know. So the came sprayed n before they came I cleaned up washed all linen n fabrics dryer them n placed them in plastic trash bags sealed. They came back To spray again. Two weeks went by n there were a few I saw so they sprayed again. And now this month 5-3-12 they are back..I went online to read reviews on apartment complex in Carrollton Texas that I reside in and low and behold..the whole apartment complex has been infested since 2009, wich I never got until this year. There are several complaints about it and most or all stated once lease is up they are moving. I live on a fixed income and my daughter helps with my rent n I don't want to sue unless they are not willing to foot the bill because I can not afford to pay almost $400 each month when they keep coming back. It's not right or fair n the people in the office are very rude n inconsiderate. I have called and emailed corporate office n they never answer phone or respond to vm and emails. I even threatened to take legal actions but didn't want to if they just listen n help out. What type of legal steps do I need to take? I was even thinking about going door to door in the complex to have a petition signed about bedbugs n then file civil suit. Please help because I am a 63 yr old woman with a heart condition n know nothing about the law.
