Husband has gotten sick due to the smell and dust in our room wear infestation was and landlord promised to clean , he did not and only rat proofed half of the house. The doctor found spots on my husband's left lung due to dust , also the home has no heat source. I was told that if the gas furnace was lit the house could blow up since there is a leak in one of the gas lines. I told him that the gas company said needed repair, do I have any legal rights.
