Huntington Park, CA asked in Personal Injury, Civil Rights and Landlord - Tenant for California

Q: I have a section 8. I am appealing my failed inspection. I have no air and they can't fix it. LACDA won't move me. Help

I failed inspection for General cleaning and they said to shampoo the carpet. I did. But my apartment doesn't have air/heat and the carpet has to be fixed. Lights come on and off whenever. Owners know and send people who can't fix the problems. So my unit is still failing inspection and LACDA is putting it on me. I have disabilities and my 2yr old is disabled. We are getting sick from heat exhaustion. We want the county to move us or at least pay for a motel voucher until this is fixed. They won't respond back.
