§ 55-225.9. Relocation of tenant where mold remediation needs to be performed in the dwelling unit.
Where a mold condition in a dwelling unit materially affects the health or safety of any tenant or authorized occupant, the landlord may require the tenant to temporarily vacate the dwelling unit in order for the landlord to perform mold remediation in accordance with professional standards as defined in § 55-225.8 for a period not to exceed 30 days. The landlord shall provide the tenant with either (a) a comparable dwelling unit, as selected by the landlord, at no expense or cost to the tenant, or (b) a hotel room, as selected by the landlord, at no expense or cost to the tenant. The tenant shall continue to be responsible for payment of rent under the rental agreement during the period of any temporary relocation. The landlord shall pay all costs of the mold remediation, unless the tenant is at fault for the mold condition.
