28 Jul (MI) Moved into basement rental with mold and no egress
Hi guys. I just moved into a rental with 3 other people. I took the basement bedroom. We were supposed to move in today but when I got there, the baseboard was damp with obvious signs of mold. I also realized that without the basement having an egress window, it's not up to code.
They are sending out a contractor today. It seems like he is only going to replace the baseboard and add downspout extensions. It seems like a bandaid on a bigger issue. I expect there's a lot of mold that isn't visible that would need to be remedied. I highly doubt the landlord would go through a full mold remediation. That doesn't change the fact that water may still keep coming in. It's not even the wettest part of the year right now. What's my best course of action here?
