My name is Denise, I’m 23 years old and have a 7 year old son. We just moved into a two bedroom apartment and have had plenty of water damage to our walls and to our carpet. We have also found mold on the carpet, the walls, window ceils, toilet, etc.
I just recently found out that I’m pregnant and have been having complications. I’m dying to move out of this apartment because my son has asthma and bad allergies. We have both been diagnosed with respiratory infections since moving in and we are always coughing and sneezing and have headaches and stomach pains. I’m not sure if these are signs of being affected by the mold.
I want to move but I am afraid that I won’t get my security deposit back and will not have anywhere else to go. I’m not sure what to do and I’m very affraid for my children and myself.
What are my rights when it comes to having mold in your aparment?
