of course, if you can prove that it is because of substandard repairs to the exterior of the building, roof leaks, etc. then you shouldnt be at fault.
(this is all how I see the situation, not what may actually happen)
it started back in may, and it would effect me what i would close the windows and use the AC, but now that its winter, and the house is all closed up, its worse. The carpet on the bottom floor feels kinda damp, and it has felt like that sense i got there. Its a pored slab (25+ years old) with a pad, and carpet ontop.
EDIT: i also found out the a pipe broke 6-7 years ago, and flooded the bottom floor. The carpet is all the same though the whole house. It used to be a VAC rental, and just this year they moved it to a yearly rental. What i am thinking is that it was never cleaned up right, and now is giving me trouble.
