Low-income renters are suffering from poor housing conditions which in the current economy are only going to get worse. Mold, whether visible or hidden, contributes to health problems such as asthma. The limited rental market provides few housing choices. If management is slow to maintain properties when times are good, think of how slow they will be as the economic downturn worsens. Inspections and remediation cost money. Some areas are attempting to respond with rental housing inspection programs, but these programs also require funding; and frequently there’s waste inspecting properties which have no issues. The answer probably lies with a complaint-driven system. Property owners or renters should be able to get their own inspections from qualified professionals in order to help accelerate the process.
