Will the insurer take an inspector’s report stating that there is no presence of mold? Or, will they take an inspector’s statement that the particular type of mold that is present is not a “dangerous” mold? Mold is something that can enter the home from the original builder. And, contrary to what some people think, not all mold is harmful.
If I had water damage in my home and I replaced the carpeting, etc, I would not think that it would automatically mean that I was going to have mold. A seller should not have to include in a disclosure every little accident that has taken place in a home prior to a sale. They should have to include any material defects that are known at the time of the sale.
