Notice of Condition Which Can Cause Mold May Be Sufficient for Liability to Tenant

Landlord/defendant’s attempt to dismiss tenant/plaintiff’s complaint alleging injuries resulting from mold was denied notwithstanding that the landlord was unaware of actual mold in the premises where plaintiff lived. The court held that conditions which could normally lead to the growth of mold, even if no mold is visible, such as water leaks and other wet conditions, was enough to put the landlord on notice of a potential mold problem and for which, as the landlord, it should have taken steps to remedy so as to keep the premises in reasonably safe condition.
