    I moved into an apartment after paying my deposit and rent 2 weeks in advance to not have a working stove or refrigerator, no hot water, no air no proper running toilet, no blinds, no door knob on door, no bathroom door, paint all over hard wood floor, semi wet carpet, not sanitizer properly and black mold around window seals. How can I get help

    Why would you pay for and move into a place as bad as that? And why wouldn't you immediately move out?

    All of that stuff was visible. Did you take the apartment sight unseen?

    The local health department or building inspection unit might be able to assist you.

    In some cities your elected city council person or mayor's office will very often assist you, too.

    Find out how to contact one of both of them, make your complaint, ask for help.

    No promises, because the result depends on where you live, and how much help (IF ANY) government will offer to the citizens.
