What-to-do-if-your-rental-home-has-mould

Mould growth can be prevented before it becomes a more serious problem. Rental Home Mould can be both a health hazard and a costly removal exercise.

If a leaking roof is causing mould in the house, you are renting and the property owner or manager is not prepared to address it during the tenancy agreement, then you have all the rights to terminate the agreement as the house is not fit for habitation. But what actually can we do if our rental home has mould?

Notify your Landlord

Since it’s not your property it is better to let the landlord know about it. The first thing that you should do is inform the landlord about the property mould. You can also take pictures of the damages or the repairs to be done.

Recheck your Lease Agreement

Even though you have read all of the terms and agreements of the lease agreement. Well, now it’s time to recheck it as there might be terms related to moulds. And as a responsible tenant, you should fulfil your duties from your side.

Temporary Remediation

These rental moulds can sometimes be harmful to your health so, don’t just sit and watch that. You can take the necessary steps on your own and minimize the risks. Later you can let the landlord know about it and remember not to overdo it as you may damage the property.

You could lodge a dispute with the RTA, which you could later progress to the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Rental Home Mould can negatively affect your health, so it should be the first option to prevent it and you should check every corner while inspecting the house.

In conclusion, we can say that home inspection is the best way to be safe from home mould. And for property inspection, it is better to consult with an expert.
