Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
The property here is uninhabitable and unsafe.You should send them a demand letter that they either release you from your existing lease or it is your intent to sue them for breach of contract.You rented habitable space, this is not what you have here.That is your recourse to claim breach of lease contract and sue if unreleased from it.
I would see if you can access any reports here and pics of mold.A sample of mold here if you can scoop it up again supports that there is a documented health hazard.You have great facts to claim breach of lease and space is unsafe here.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
If your landlord does not provide habitable office under local and state housing codes, a court would probably conclude that you have been “constructively evicted;” this means that the landlord, by supplying unlivable housing, has for all practical purposes “evicted” you, so you have no further responsibility for the rent. Again this seems to be the situation here, a demand letter to be released form lease is your next step.
Thanks again and good luck here.
