Good morning. Under the law you do not have to grant the inspector access. If you do not grant access they must obtain a warrant from the court to enter the property and inspect. Courts usually don't grant access on complaints for mold, it usually requires a more serious violation, like occupancy. However they can write a failure to access violation and you can challenge that in four, if it is written.

If he finds some mold and you do grant access, then he could either write a violation or require you clean the mold. That would be in his discretion.
