If you are a renter: the landlord is responsible for controlling moisture problems and removing mold, unless it is an issue related to the tenant’s behavior. Renters can address some minor moisture problems themselves.
Tenants and landlords should work cooperatively to investigate and correct moisture and mold problems. If the owner is unwilling to help, the renter may seek outside advice. If the case cannot be addressed with a local building, housing inspector, a renter may wish to contact an attorney or tenants’ organization to discuss legal options.
