Who do i call about mold and violations?

I have been buggin my landlord to replace my bathtub and walls around bathtub for 5 months. Mold keeps growing up my wall and my bathtub is so gross and nasty, its like stuck on mold that wont come off. And i can beat you that the walls around my bathtub have mold growing all the back of them. i live in a mobile home and the walls around the tub are the same as the rest of the house, and the wall has holes in it so water can get through. i have asked my landlord serveral times, and they just keep telling they will look into and still havent done a thing. Who do i need to call and report them to so i can get this problem taken care of. I beat you that all my landlords have something wrong with them, that makes them unsafe to live in. I would move but there is no way i can afford it.

  • Google your local health department.. it usually goes by state.

  • You can report them to the health department. However, if the health department declares it unfit to live in, you will have to move out until it gets fixed.

  • i would move!! Some way somehow. your baby is in danger. Do the have like a business or are they independant? If business call BBB, call housing authority for your area and as everyone else said health dept. Most states have "slum lord" laws.
