Buying a moldy house?
I have found a lakefront property that has a nice lot and a mold problem.
If I bought, I would totally gut the property removing everything including plumbing and electric and remodel entirely.
Can mold normally be remedied by gutting the interior, if the mold can be seen, can it be completely removed?
I understand the source of the moisture would have to be eliminated.
The property sits high on a hill so it is not affected by the lake itself. I am thinking problems with roof or drainage.
I know this question is vague and I am supplying little information to go on, I am going to look at the property near the end of the week and will know more about the state of repair at that time.
If I made an offer, it would be based on a total tear down, but I would prefer to keep the structure if possible.
