Roughly 2 weeks ago my basement apartment flooded for the fifth time. I got in touch with me landlord right away and they offered no help. I borrowed a shopvac from the neighbour and got it cleaned up. I got brave and pulled up the edge of the carpet to find Black Mould and crumbling plywood under the carpet. I went to my landlord and showed him the photo and he said he needed to speak to his wife.

I wait patiently and a week or so later she emails me saying 'the mould and water damage in concerning ' and apparently in her uneducated opinion the unit needs to be cleared to be repaired. She told me we have until Sept 1st to move out.

I did some research and see that she has to give me an n13 form and 120 days notice on the form. I emailed her and the husband, sent them the form and asked them to fill it out and send it back to me with 120 days notice. I also followed up a couple days later with a text and have not heard anything except an email from the husband saying 'he was having nothing to do with the wifes decision'

1) how do I force her to fill out the form?
2) carpet is an easy repair and so is the cause of the flood. How many days do they have to replace the carpet from the mould? I thought it was 30 days? It is not healthy for my family to be living in this!

Thank you!
