Help with Bad Landlord

I'm new to Charlotte and moved into the Reedy Creek Mobile Home Park. First of all, anyone considering this place - DON'T. Larry Hightower and Tony from Gino's Auto Repair are slumlords.

Now, I pay my rent religiously. Moved here to hell in end of May. Refrigerator broke over a month ago and still have none. HUGE hole in my trailer - you can see the darn siding AND the underneath of trailer. Bug problem BAD. Well water smelly and brown. Leaks at seam of roof and walls.

My problem. Just figured out that even if emergency, if you fix or start to fix, your landlord is off the darn hook. He can get away without replacing or fixing my fridge, leaks with black mold, holes in wall where my outlets are literally laying on the floor, but I can't get away with not paying rent. Is this how NC works??????

I've contacted 2 tv stations - wbtv and wsoc you should be ashamed that this is not newsworthy enough that landlords can get away with this. I contacted the city - what a joke. If I fix, I'm SOL. But I have inspector coming out. BUT I need to know how I can get my landlord to do his damn job - which includes more than just sticking his hand out for my hard earned money.

Can anybody point me in the right direction so I can get some help? Lawyers want $150 min. just to talk to you. Is NC so slack on resources that slumlords rule? Please help me piss off my landlord with some help that works.

Maybe if you give him a bl*w j*b he will get you a new fridge and repair your trailer!

i would be withholding rent at this point. you could also just move somewhere else instead of paying slumlords.
