Thank You National Apartment Association.

Excerpts from Article –
The complex, east of Austin Bluff Parkway and north of Rangewood Drive, stood unfinished and exposed to the elements for several years, which some believe caused mold to accumulate on lumber and beams.
Note: Jefferson Lakes Apartments, where we were exposed to massive amounts of mold, also stood unfinished and exposed to the elements for at least a couple of years.” See the links at end of post.  Katy
A Colorado Springs couple says mold in their apartment made them sick. They’re not the first to complain about the Pinnacle Apartments near Austin Bluffs and Rangewood and now they want to warn others.
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Brian Bauman and his wife, Jessica, said looks were deceiving at the Pinnacle Apartments. They said soon after moving in they got sick from mold in their apartment and around the complex.
They said they looked at a model apartment, but were told they couldn’t see their unit because it hadn’t been cleaned. On move-in day, they said they walked into their apartment to find dirty carpets and sinks, cracks in the tiles and a refrigerator that didn’t work. But more concerning, they said they discovered mold.
They snapped pictures of mold in their apartment, in a neighbor’s apartment and at other areas in the complex. They said their sickness began almost immediately.
The couples’ doctor agreed that the symptoms were likely from mold exposure.
“He suggested we not return to the unit, and we took his suggestion,” said Bauman.
The couple isn’t the first to complain about mold at the Pinnacle. In the past, KRDO NEWSCHANNEL 13 has spoken with other families who said they had to move out because they got sick from mold, as well as residents who showed us leaking water pipes and holes in the ceiling.
On Saturday, our producer posed as a prospective resident to ask about mold problems.
“Has there been any water intrusion or mold problems?” he asked. “Nope,” replied the leasing agent.
The manager at the Pinnacle Apartments said she had no comment for this story. She referred us to a supervisor at Resident Management Systems. That person didn’t return multiple messages.
Resident Management Systems has billed Brian and Jessica almost $7,000 for breaking their lease. The couple has hired a lawyer and are teaming up with other former residents to pursue a lawsuit.

Irrefutable evidence indicates that Riverstone Residential, Guarantee Service Team of Professionals, & plaintiffs’ attorney, J Arthur Smith III, must have agreed to exclude evidence that would have shown the owners of Jefferson Lakes Apartments & Riverstone Residential had knowledge of the severe MOLD INFESTATION at the complex before we moved in

TRUTH OUT Sharon Kramer Letter To Andrew Saxon MOLD ISSUE
“Changes in construction methods have caused US buildings to become perfect petri dishes for mold and bacteria to flourish when water is added. Instead of warning the public and teaching physicians that the buildings were causing illness; in 2003 the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, a think-tank, and a workers comp physician trade organization mass marketed an unscientific nonsequitor to the courts to disclaim the adverse health effects to stave off liability for financial stakeholders of moldy buildings. Although publicly exposed many times over the years, the deceit lingers in US courts to this very day.”
