What are your legal options if you just found black mold in a house you bought few weeks ago?

What are your legal options if you just found black mold ?

First off ” black mold” is a media made terror word…

there are literally thousands of types of molds living around and in you..indoors and out. VERY FEw (6. Categories) are toxic. Stachybotrys is what most people refer to as ” black mold” it can be dangerous to
elderly…young children and those with compromised immune systems.

It can be safely removed and cleaned.

As far as your legal options go..well unless you can prove the seller KNEw for a fact there was toxic mold and intentionally hid it you are out of luck.

If you paid for a mold inspection AND CAN PROVE LEGALLY the toxic mold was there during the inspection you can sue the mold inspector.( that isa hard thing to prove because of the nature of molds..
you can be mold free this week and be growing molds next week if the moisture amounts change)

If you did not pay for a separate mold inspection you need to realize a regular house inspection is for household ” systems”.
