Rentals are the worst for mold because you are not only exposed to problems from your
unit, but others units surrounding you. As you know most mold problems are caused by
water leaks.

First you need to find out why the mold grew in the first place to place the
liability on the correct party,like neglect , poor maintenance, or the neighbor set off the
sprinkler system etc....

We are not qualified to give legal or medical advice, but it is our opinion; rental management has an obligation to resolve the situation and give everyone a healthy environment to live in. Here are some suggestions for direction and a plan of
action. You need proof that it is actually mold in your property, so take lots pictures of
everything, record all conversations with management, in person, and over the telephone.

Also, have a disinterested third party do environmental testing and send those samples to a certified microbiology lab, make sure the person doing the testing is Mold Certified.Those home test kits for mold are worthless as they don't stand up in Court, and don't work for insurance purposes either.If someone is sick you'll also need to prove your body has been to exposed mold as well, as your health, or your families health is your real problem.

You'll need to get an estimate of your real damages If you are going to hire a mold remediation or testing company to rid the mold, make sure they are qualified and certified by places such as; IAQA, RIA or IICRC. Remember, if the mold is in your unit, it's also in your clothes and furniture.

They will probably need to be professionally cleaned or replaced. So get estimates from professionals on the cost of your propertys contents being remediated.

Armed with this, you can go to a Lawyer and fight whatever damage has been done to
you, your family, your personal possessions, and your health after being been exposed to mold. If you don't have insurance or a doctor you may want to call some of the numbers below if someone gets sick.
