Is there any recourse for being rented a house with mold?

The previous tenant broke their lease because of an odor that could not be resolved. Neither the property mgr. or the owner will take responsibilty. But has offered to refund all my money. Is this guilt or are they afraid of being sued?

This is true you would need to elaborate a bit for me to properly answer this question. Also what state is the property located in? Have you become ill due to this condition?

Could you take a moment to describe your current position.  Are you currently renting the place?  Is there known mold or merely suspected (and why)?

Asking for recourse implies that you have incurred damages. If the landlord is going to give you your money back, what other financial damages have you incurred due the alleged defect of the home?
