Q: How do I get conservatorship of my adult daughter to fix black mold issue in her house

Black mold is under the shower base and she can not go downstairs in her own house because it is hazardous. Conservatorship refuses to clean up the mold issue and leak.

A: Call the health department and report the situation. They might have the clout to force a clean up.

Be careful what you ask for, though. Can your daughter afford the cost of clean up? Maybe she would be better off selling to someone who can afford clean up and move to a better situation.

If she is renting, this should be the landlord's problem to solve and the health department can probably make that happen.
