Demand letter from landlord for mold restoration in rental property


Hi I am living in an apartment from 2.5 years and the apartment i am living always have water on the glass windows and glass doors during winter and rainy seasons. I have raised a complaint to the property management and they always come back and said to keep the apartment to have the air flow even if outside is so cold and rainy. now after 6 months of going back and forth, they sent a letter saying that i am jmusing humidifier (only from last 2-3 months) and that resulted in mold. Since my use of humidifer has csised mold they want me to pay for cleaning of mold and drywall restoration which us upto 10000. Any advice?

Each state and rental contract can be different. This article on Renter Rights and Mold ( may be a helpful starting point for you. Is there a reason you were using a humidifier in the rental? Do you have any proof that this water condensation was happening on the windows before you started using it?
