I'm currently renting with a private landlord, everything was fine until an outbreak of mould. My flatmate moved out as we were told that the builders would need the flat clear but realized it was only surface mould so I was allowed to stay in the flat, rent free whilst paying bills. During this time my 6 months contract ended. I've been living there without a contract for over a month and the LL wants a new tenant by Friday, they've not given me much time as I was only allowed to conduct viewings once the place was painted (last week).

Just after some advice, we live in a new-ish build which of course was built in a week or so and using cheap materials means that the ventilation is awful in bathrooms with no windows. We use the fans every time we have a shower but the mould still grew. Add to the fact there's 2 en suites in this little flat.

As I said above I was told to wipe this which I did b
Hello, I'm really hoping someone will be able to give me some advice, I don't know what to do. I moved into my flat last week (4th Jan). It's in a converted Victorian terrace. When I looked round I thought the flat had a musty smell but the lettings agency told me it was because the flat had been empty for a few months. Despite my best efforts to air the flat, I can't get the smell to go. The carpet lifts up in a couple of corners and I can see that the carpet underlay is pretty black and smells of mould. I can't see any other signs of mould around the flat apart from in the bathroom,
