Treatment for mold (by Kathy [CA]) Posted on: May 12, 2019 9:17 AM
Message:

Do you have a sample letter/notice that I can give to tenant.

Regarding treatment for mold in their apartment?

The tenant has been reluctant to leave. Theyíve said they canít leave because her daughter is in first trimester of pregnancy and she has to stay in bed.

Since the mold was discovered Iíve been proactive in getting the mold treated and eliminated.

The apartment above hers also has mold. However he has been very cooperative. He is out now as we have started the treatment process.

Iím compensating them for the time they need to be gone.

I want to protect myself.

Thank you very much

Kathy

You don't compensate them, instead you don't charge them rent for the period of time they're not in the property.

Second you send them a 24 hour notice to enter, days before you plan on having the work performed.

I had tenants that reported me to "Housing" and the "County Health Department" that I refused to re-paint their apartment. What happened is I made an appointment for a Monday. When I showed up they refused to allow me to enter, saying I should return another time.

Then I sent them a 24 hour notice that I was coming back on Thursday to do the agreed work. On Thursday I showed up with a painting crew. Again I was refused entry. I sent the tenant a second letter outlining my efforts and out of pocket expense.

I then issued them a 3rd notice to enter, this time showing up with another painting company. Once again I was denied entry.

The tenant stopped paying rent a re-ported me again for not painting. The City and County issued me fines. I turned around and put everyone on notice that I'm suing in small claims court and had the tenants, Housing and the Health Department served. No one wanted to listen as to the steps I took trying to comply. It' is always the landlords fault in the eyes of the law. I won my small claims case, having the two painting contractors showing up and my Hall Security Camera of the events shown in court. I then evicted my tenants.....

All this because my City and County are on the side of tenants and nothing I ever do is good enough.

Now I had another case under my wings to use when I get bulled. --47.156.xx.xx

Seems odd the pregnant one doesn't want to move. Most would jump at the chance. Is it "mold" or mildew? I would give them X amount of days leave to treat the mildew. If she is mobile enough to see a doc, she is mobile enough to move from one area to another. No one says she has to carry anything. Most women are not on bed rest for the 1st trimester, but either way, if she can see a doc or leave the apartment in any way... --73.230.xxx.xx

Which mold did the mold testing company say was in the building? You did get a professional right? And they gave you a report? Was it stachybotris? --173.61.xxx.xx

It will probably involve removing all the drywall then taking out fiberglass insulation. That work will require vacant possession. Consider contacting a landlords association for advise where Google to find one. If new insulation is required then install spray foam which has less problems with mold. Eventually rental buildings that requires vacant possession. --147.194.xxx.xx

Open windows for ventilation, pick up wet towels and laundry from bathroom floor, use fan when needed, use oxygen bleach (peroxide) to clean mildew looking stuff to prevent formation of mold. All in housekeeping negligence... --76.188.xxx.xx

This sentence got me... Theyíve said they canít leave because her daughter is in first trimester of pregnancy and she has to stay in bed.

How does she go to Doctor? Restrooms? Really... ride in an ambulance... think she could figure out how to move to save her health and that of the baby. --99.203.xx.xxx
