Widespread mold caused multiple problems for tenants and the property owner. A few years after construction of an upscale apartment community, tenants complained about mold in bathrooms. Multiple buildings and units within the complex experienced similar problems over the next few months. Some tenants moved out and filed claims for alleged bodily injury and property damage. An extensive investigation revealed that construction defects associated with HVAC systems and showers caused severe water intrusion and moisture build-up leading to widespread mold growth. Damages to the property owner included loss of rents, clean-up costs, and settlements with injured tenants totaled over two million dollars.
