Requesting a Mold Inspection if You’re Renting
Mold vulnerability can be just as much of a problem in rental properties, such as apartments and rented homes, as in other residences. Mold contamination can be very problematic for landlords: costly cleanup, expensive property damage, and even lawsuits by tenants with mold-related illnesses. It’s important, as a tenant, to hold your landlord accountable for annual A/C servicing and mold inspections. Be sure to get approval or consent from your landlord before requesting a mold inspection for your rented home. Your landlord should be notified if you suspect mold growth. It’s their responsibility to ensure that tenants’ home is habitable.
