Tulsa tenant claims her house is a lemon, turns to 2NEWS Problem Solvers to get landlord's attention

TULSA - TULSA -- It's a home with big problems and Dawn Mutchler says she is tired of living in it.

"I started having problems with plumbing within two weeks after I moved in," said Mutchler.

The biggest problem is in the bathroom, where she says a pipe under the floor often backs up, sending water back into the bathroom.

"It gargles," said Mutchler.  "You can hear pipes draining under the house."

Mutchler says she has tried calling her landlord repeatedly. She even sent a letter, but claims nothing has been done.

"I'm not asking for a miracle overnight, just some help," Mutchler said.

So, she called the 2NEWS Problem Solvers. And we helped put her in touch with the Tulsa County Health Department.

When they inspected the home,  the health department acknowledged plumbing issues and asked the landlord to take a look.

The landlord, RaderGroup Property Management, said they would like to fix the plumbing but say Mutchler's hoarding and her dogs prevent them from doing it.  

Instead, RaderGroup has now offered Mutchler one of their other properties to live in.

"Hopefully everything will work out," said Mutchler.

She is hoping to put this home with big problems behind her.
