WALKER COUNTY, Ga. — A north Georgia family is looking for a new place to live after finding a wild infestation in their home.

If that’s not enough, the family said their landlord won’t do anything to fix the issues. The responsibility falls on the tenants.

“We are trying to get everything out of there by Saturday,” the family said.

The family stopped paying the landlord but under Georgia law, a renter can’t withhold rent.
