Had to remove everything from room. Residents cannot be left unattended. Must empty buckets constantly. So doesn’t go to lower level. He won’t reduce rent. He actually raised my rent wife and I have been sick more . We has a mold guy here we have mold.
A: It sounds as if you may have claims for reduced rent value, possibly mold damages as well. If desired, with written notice to the landlord, you may have rights to move to alternative housing at the landlord's expense above your rent. Consider reviewing everything with a landlord-tenant attorney.
A: Our firm practices this area of the law. Your landlord has a duty to maintain the premises in a habitable condition for a residential lease, assuming Oregon law applies. However, you refer to "residents" which implies this may be a commercial lease. In a commercial lease, you will need to review your contract to determine your remedies. To answer your question, one would need to know if this is a commercial or residential lease and the state and county, as the laws are different from county to county and city to city in Oregon.
