Buying A Home – Buyer Beware!
I cannot tell you how many calls and emails I get from people who just bought a home only to discover there is a mold problem. Real Estate agents and sellers are suppose to devulge that info, but few do.
So, how to protect yourself as a home buyer… in your contract, very clearly state that the price is contingent upon a home inspection – AND – a mold inspection, yes put it in the contract!!! Otherwise, if you buy it and find there is a mold problem you could be sinking many thousands into claning it up and it can cost you your health. I’m serious about this.
I was contacted by a woman earlier this past summer who was calling on behalf of a family of 6 who had a severe mold problem in their home. They all ended up in the hospital, and the wife/mother suffered brain damage, she is now confined to a wheelchair and dozens of med’s for the rest of her life.
Toxic mold is NOT something to be taken lightly and it can kill you. If you have mold, clean it up, if you don’t have it yet prevent it with essential oils!
