Mold presents very serious environmental hazards causing concern among renters and tenants in Victoria, Cowichan, Duncan, Nanaimo, Parksville, Qualicum, Courtenay, Comox, Campbell River, and Port Alberni.  Mold can lead to significant health problems such as rashes, chronic fatigue, nausea, cognitive losses, hemorrhaging, and asthma. Click here to learn more on how vulnerable to mold exposure you may be.

If you suspect there is mold in your rental unit, contact the Landlord immediately.  Section 32 of the Act, the Landlord “must provide and maintain the residential property in a state of decoration and repair that complies with the health, safety and housing standards required by law.”

However, the Landlord may also say that you have caused the mold, for example, by leaving damp towels around, not keeping the bathroom fan on long enough, etc…

As the Tenant, you are responsible to maintain reasonable health, cleanliness and sanitary standards throughout the rental unit and residential property.

If you’re dealing with mold that you believe is not your fault, take lots of pictures and document everything including conversations with your Landlord.  If you have questions, call the Residential Tenancy Branch at 1-800-665-8779.
