Milwaukee, WI asked in Contracts and Civil Litigation for Wisconsin

Q: Hello, the apartment building was sold last year and I'm up for a new lease. There were a nuber of issues cracks in wal

ls and ceilings But one main issue is under old ownership the tenant above my apartment installed a bidet incorrectly and overflowed and water came through my bathroom ceiling. I mentioned my concern about mold and the maintenance man stated the building material were mold resistant. I advised the new owners rep of the event and was concerned of mold in between my ceiling and the upper floor space. The lease they want to me sign has aa section that states I'm responsible for all mold issue. I asked them to modify or remove that from the lease and they said no. Any and all advise is welcome
