This is a 3 bedroom 2 bath brick house made in 1969. I have lived here for about 10 years now. The way I bought it was through a church because I have bad credit and don't make enough money to buy a new house and go through a actual Realtor.
This house has been falling down left and right.
The roof leaks, the ceiling leaks, the walls have cracks in every room, the central ac blew up years ago, the plumbing backs up sewage in the bathtub, sink, and toilet sometimes. I only have half a room of carpet and its all ruined and stained from pets.
The chimney leaks water and it it puddles up where you would put wood to burn. The ceiling leaks so bad when it rains, I have to put buckets under it.
I have one mall window ac unit that works on low and freezes up all the time and it leaks water in the floor also.
The gutters are falling off the house, and the wood behind them is all rotted and falling off. The cracks are so bad outside the garage is separating from the house.
The main bathroom shower wall is falling in and the wood is rotting under it.
The driveway is has broken into pieces and the side walk has also, some has caved in because the ground has opened up and swallowed it.
The other bathroom, the toilet doesnt flush and the shower faucet leaks and drips water so we just don't use that bathroom at all.
All the blinds in the house are brown and broken. The dish washer has been broke for years.
I don't make much over minimum wage and can't afford new materials, I can't get a loan because of bad credit, and I am buying the house from a church and they can't help me either.
The house is still not paid off. What can I do?
I have some pictures if you would like to see some one the damage.
The house is close to being unlivable. There is no insalation in the walls of the living room, its all wood paneling that is coming apart. There is some kind of animal living in the walls of the living room. There are cracks every where and some you can see outside. I have a major bug problem, but luckily my cats keep them away most of the time.
What can I do... really?
