visit: Mold Lawsuit
Q. In June of 2002 my husband and I
moved into an apt. in north Oakland so that he could attend UC Berkeley.
Prior to moving in I expressed some concern to my landlord regarding the
layers of carpets in the living room and the extensive mold growth in
the bathroom. I am asthmatic and have severe mold allergies.
Since we moved here I am now on daily inhalators, Dr. prescribed nasal
sprays and oral creams. I know that my apt. is making me sick, but
this is a pricey area and I can't afford to move. Do I have legal rights?
How can he continue to charge rent for an apt. that is making me sick.
Your first step is to seriously consider moving out of the apartment
until it has been inspected and test, and, if necessary, mold
remediated. Your family's health can be seriously damaged by living in
mold infestation. Your second
step is to hire a
Mold Inspector [paid by you] to thoroughly inspect and
test your apartment solely on your behalf with absolute loyalty to do
the best possible inspection to find the truth about your rental, and to
document any mold problems. If you don't have expert mold testing
results in writing, you cannot do the third step which is to get a
consultation with a local environmental attorney so that the attorney
can send a demand letter for more mold testing and for mold remediation
of the apartment and of all of your probably mold-contaminated personal.
Hire the lawyer to keep up the pressure on the property owner until the
property has been mold cleaned and mold remediated and it tests
mold-free after remediation. The clearance test after mold remediation
should be by your
Mold Inspector who you hired initially. Your attorney
should obtain compensation from the landlord to pay for healthy living
quarters for your family while mold remediation is in process. Read the
