My initial reaction is no, your landlord can't break the lease by raising your rent based on the types of repairs involved. Keep in mind that you need to have an attorney review your lease and any correspondence you have with your landlord before advising you one way or the other.

These types of sales are only as good as the contract, so you need to look there, for any warranties. If you had the right of inspection, you may have no rights.

Call this law firm. Focus on the hazardous mold and air quality, to see if you have recourse.
