I don't think it will do ya any good. You need to look over the terms of your lease agreement. Having a lawyer could be quite helpful too though.

Hell I'm just an electrician. I can put some new lights and a fan in for ya though.

Do you want to live in a place with mold? The repairs would be pretty disruptive if you were living there (if you even could live there) while it was being fixed. I can see you don't want to move where your rent will be higher. But your landlord will be putting out big bucks to fix it and his only choice is to get higher rent to cover his costs. I don't think a lawyer is going to help.

Bad advise in this thread. 

 

It does not always depend on your lease.  As a tenant you have specific legal rights.  Talk to an attorney.

Buy it from him. Then remidiate it y'all selves. Can't be too expensive if it has mold in it.

If the property has black mold, it will have to be taken care of prior to close of escrow.  So regardless, it will come out of the owner's pocket, either in the form of a seller credit or whatever the repair ends up costing.  No lender will close a purchase loan with that type of issue.

Mold is no joke..I had a 8' * 6' section of mold in my bedroom closet that cost me 5k to get demo'd when I sold my house here in Ca. The final air test is what is spendy.

The mold thing was neg .he was concerned that i went to my docs for a blood test on my own,and said he was wondering if id sue him or get a lawyer involved after the fact.seems he was more worried about the leaks at this point and like i say he dont want to spend money....seems fishy to me

This is the right advice.

You can't be evicted without a court order, you better have a pretty strong case to have someone evicted, and it doesn't happen overnight.  However a lease not being renewed is commonplace and legal, totally 2 different issues.  Not to split hairs, but the property can be sold for cash or to a private equity investor, better know as a land contract holder, as there are no inspections required.  Inspections not only for mold but structural, plumbing and electrical are up to current codes, are by required by lending institutions.

My son inlaw was renting a home in Florida, water leakage was detected, the landlord didn't address the problem in a professional manner, as a result mold in the home.  Just because your blood work is negative today doesn't mean it will be negative tomorrow, get an attorney and get it on record.  In the case of my kids, my daughter's blood work came up positive for mold disease (she is sick), blood work is being done not only for my SIL and gr daughter but their 3 dogs as well, I don't know the results.  Yes they have an attorney specializing in mold and related problems.

 

The only reason I mentioned private equity investing is because I just became aware recently.  My former business partner is doing this, not to get into specific details but this practice pushes the limit of usury laws, and takes advantage of unworthy credit borrowers with excessive interest rates and closing costs.  Legal yes, but I'm pretty pisssed off at my partner, I don't like it.
