Apartment Offers to Move Tenant after Mushrooms Grew in Carpet

SACRAMENTO-

Since FOX40 investigated mushrooms sprouting like flowers in Natalie Wise’s apartment on Monday, the complex owned by Whisler Land offered to put her in another unit, but Wise says it’s not enough.

After transferring electricity, cable and internet bills, Wise says it’s a move she can’t afford and is demanding Whisler Land cover the costs.

“I am on a fixed income. It is Christmas. At the beginning of the month I payed my bills in full so that I can have something at the end of  the month for my son,” said Wise.

Since moving in earlier this year, Wise says her apartment has flooded six times.

She calls and emails the onsite manager, but says her needs are rarely met.

All tenants in the Diablo Rivera apartment complex received a letter asking to no longer call Whisler Land company with complaints only the onsite manager.

“I spoke to the resident manager this morning, who gave me an email address for the management company, even though we were instructed not to call them with any maintenance issues,” said Wise.

Wise says Whisler Land offered to cover the move, but not any other expenses.

We reached out to Whisler Land, but they would not comment.

“I had to live with my mother for two weeks before I moved in here so that I could scrape every penny and make sure it was enough before I moved in here,” she said.
