Welcome! My name is***** give me a few minutes to analyze and/or research your inquiry and I will be back.
You will need to inspect the real estate contract you signed and look for a clause that allows you to cancel the contract if major problems are found during the home inspection, like mold. If the contract did not allow for immediate cancellation at that point or if you failed to exercise that option in a timely manner, then check for wording which allows the seller a specified time period to remedy the problem before you have the right to cancel the deal. You will now need to wait for the remedy time stipulated in the contract, if any, to pass before canceling the contract. Or, if the mold remediation is not done properly as per an independent expert, you may be able to argue that the seller breached the contract and ask for recession at that time.
