Pineville, NC (WBTV) - Brian Causby and Adam Beach were looking forward to new job opportunities when they moved from Morganton to the Charlotte area last winter but their move hasn't gone smoothly.

"It has been frustrating," said Causby standing in the bedroom of his Pineville apartment.

Causby says they went most of last winter without a working furnace.  The problem now is a water leak soaking their carpet.  Causby and Beach reported it to the landlord nearly two months ago.

"It's bad," said Beach.  "We would just love to resolve this and move on."
