Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help with your question and concern
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Before breaking the lease and vacating, a tenant would need to provide the landlord with written notice and give them a chance to cure. In this case, they would need to remove the mold and repair/cure the issue. Now, if they fail to do so and the mold is harmful/toxic, the rental would not be habitable and there would be a legal basis to vacate. If you wanted to have evidence to support your actions, you could call a 3rd party company to come out and assess it and determine what it is and the cost of repair and the severity of it and present that to the landlord as well.
