Default Housing situation

I didn't know where to put this but because of my situation, im suffering immense amount of anxiety.

Long story short, I was dealing with an upstairs neighbor that caused a lot of noise for two years, giving me ptsd, and after his arrest for assault it was silent for a short while. Then unannounced, there were loud hammering, dropping of things and so on like construction work. I complained about it, as I did for over 2 years I lived there.

Then my landlord decided to have me leave my apartment shortly so that they can replace shower pan in my shower. So they had some people come in, rip a huge hole, trashed my apartment, left the hole there with thin sheet of plastic with no note on when they're going to finish covering the hole. Also that my landlord wanted to talk to me about complaints against me regardless of complaints I've made.

The apartment is a hellhole, everyone is doing drugs, leaving trash everywhere, inviting homeless people inside and causing a ruckus and I'm the one they target. I want to get the hell out of this apartment but i had no way of knowing where to go and I want to leave Seattle forever.

As long as the property manager is giving you ample notice (the rule of thumb is usually a minimum 24hrs) to make repairs they can enter your suite to do so. As for complaints, do you know for a fact these are against you? Do you know what these complaints comprise of yet? I say hang on and wait until you have to face this conversation. They can't be too bad or the property manager would have already told you about them when he had the first opportunity. They may in fact be nothing much at all. Cross that bridge when you come to it.

As for your wish to move. You are valid on this point as obviously you feel your current situation is neither safe nor sound. One has got to feel comfortable where they live. So I would start putting out feelers now for prospective places to live...

Do you attend a support group? Sometimes those networks of people we develop are great sources. Perhaps someone you know will have a lead on a place. So too, you might discover a potential room mate. Check with your local mental health association. They can help you in more ways than one. Most will maintain a list of suitable housing. Also, they may be able to set you up with an advocate - one that can help you with your present situation or one that can help you with settling things pertaining to the procurement of some place new.
