Five months of roof leaking in West Omaha rental home

Pictures just in from a West Omaha rental home. Tenant is reporting that the roof started leaking last summer. The landlord put patches on the roof, but it didn’t stop the leaking. Leaking was reported again late last year, but no one came to fix anything. For the past five months, the roof has been leaking and the ceilings have been getting progressively worse. One of the bedroom windows recently became stuck open and cannot be closed. Landlord was notified,  and no one has come out to fix it.

Leaking ceilings and mold for 7 months

Pictures and video just in from a tenant living near 40th and Jones street. Shortly after moving in, tenant reported that the ceiling started leaking, with water streaming down the wall dangerously close to an electrical outlet. It took three months of constant reporting to the landlord before someone was sent to look at the problem. Shortly afterwards, more of the ceiling started leaking, and the wet conditions caused mold that led the tenant to get sick. Altogether, the tenant lived in these wet and moldy for SEVEN months, with no relief or permanent fixes from the landlord.
