Hi, I had a home inspected that I had made an offer on. After the inspection, I had doubts. There are 4 places in the ceiling, 2 in different closets, 1 in the hallway and 1 in a bedroom that has black mold on it. The house has been empty since probably last Feb. or March. Could this be condensation, the inspector said the roof looked good. Also, in the crawl space right under the fireplace the subfloor appears to be damp. Could this be from the roof around the fireplace chimney? That's the only thing me and the inspector and the realtor could think of. Would very much appreciate your input on this. The house is totol electric if that makes a difference. There has been no heat on in the house or air conditioning.
