A few years ago I bought a home. The inspector found mold in the attic and pointed out that the upstairs bathrooms did not have vents. I remediated the mold and had an electrician install vents that would vent to the outside.
Now it's 3 years later and I am selling my house. The inspector comes over and there is mold in the attic, and he does some digging in the insulation of the attic and sees that the vents don't actually go anywhere....they vent right into the attic!
I now need to have this mold remidiated AGAIN. Is the contractor in the wrong? Should I pursue having him pay me for the remediation as well as have him fix the fans so that they vent to the outside?
What other steps could I take?
-Edit- This is Southern New Hampshire, USA.
-Further Edit- I found this link which explains it's a code violation. Does that strengthen my case? In what year did venting bathroom exhaust out of the house become a code requirement?
