Tampa, FL -- Following a 10 News story about deplorable conditions and unanswered repair calls by tenants at Carlyle at Waters apartments, the city is sending out three code enforcement inspectors to look at the complex.
Jacquelyn Pinkney, a resident at Carlyle, says she's been dealing with leaky windows, mold and an enclosed porch that she worries will soon collapse. Yet she says most of her calls to the Carlyle apartment management team to get the problems fixed, have been ignored.

Upstairs from Pinkney, Sierra Hancock says her toilet has been broken for nearly two months, and that she feels complex management doesn't seem to care about the issues residents are facing.
Walking the grounds of the complex, located at 8417 N. Armenia Ave, 10 News found exposed wires submerged in water and a number of enclosed balconies and railings that appeared to be in desperate need of repair. A number of residents also complained to 10 News about cockroaches inside the apartments.

An official with code enforcement was out late Friday to look at Pinkney's apartment, but 10 News has been told three city inspectors will be back at Carlyle on Saturday to begin documenting problems.
10 News attempted to talk with the management at Carlyle, but a woman who only identified herself only as Dana, the manager, said she declined comment. The women added; "this is private property and I don't want you to come in here anymore."
Pinkney says she wants out of her lease and for Carlyle to pay her rent money back. Friday she began talking with an attorney about the situation.
Also on Friday afternoon Carlyle offered to put Pinkney up in a local motel for the next week while they began repairs in her apartment.
