A: Hire a warranty of habitability attorney. I believe you need serious help. Do not hire or allow anyone that will lie in an official report.

A: Mold infestation is a MAJOR problem, it can lead to brain damage in tenants through prolonged exposure. You and your kids are exposed. You should not be trying to handle this yourself, you should find an experienced attorney handling mold issues- most will be in Los Angeles County, I did a quick search in the IE and none came up. Look here for an attorney handling mold. If you can SEE any of the mold, take photos with date/time stamps on them. Keep a written log about your symptoms.

A: A lawyer can't promise success any more than a brain surgeon can before surgery.

Call a local lawyer that will normally give a free consultation.

Look for a Mold lawyer who will have HIS expert exam the place.
