You should immediately sit down with a Landlord Tenant attorney and/or a personal injury lawyer who handle mold cases. A lot of attorneys don't handle mold cases so you might have to contact a few until you find one. If you find an attorney who can help with both that would be best.
In this case, 10 years have passed, there is no renewal, no attempt to collect or attempt to pay by any party. Does the interest continue beyond the 10-year time a judgement is valid? Is it possible to negotiate a settlement agreement to pay the original amount owed without the interest added and... Read more »

It depends on whether you have a lease. If you don't have a lease, that means you are in a month-to-month tenancy, so the landlord has the right to terminate your tenancy by giving you 30 days' prior notice if you have been in the rental for one year or less, or 60 days' prior notice...Read more »
