Can I sue a landlord for covering up black mold and asbestos?

You should let the landlord know right away and they need to remedy that situation in a reasonable time frame. Now be aware that to fully remedy it could take a lot more then you realize and you could even be asked to move out for a few days to accomplish it, you probably will be asked to vacate so the issue can be remedied. The landlord should pay for your hotel or whatever expenses during that time. If the landlord does not remedy it within a reasonable time contact a lawyer by
you that does landlord/tenant laws.

To sue can get tricky as you would have to prove the landlord was aware of the issues before you moved in. Talk to a lawyer by you to see if you would have a case.
