How does one even answer a post like this?
This poster cannot type a coherent sentence. I have a feeling this tenant is most likely the cause of all of the problems. I can just see this tenant now, a poor tenant, living in disgusting conditions, no wonder there are pests, they probably brought them when they moved in.
It also sounds like they need to learn the rights they have as a tenant and how to go about enforcing them. With proper written notice, a tenant can have a lot of support for conditions such as these, but continuing to live in this environment without notifying the proper authorities or finding another place to live, is a great way to notify the judge that it can't be that bad, you didn't leave and you didn't learn what steps to take, so why should he/she be nice to you. You got yourself into this mess, use the appropriate tools to get yourself out.
