I'm a landlord renting a house on a one year lease in Oregon since July 2012. Recently there was a faulty leaking water heather and created a flooding and developed mold in one bedroom and in one bathroom, damaging my tenant's bed. After I replaced the water heather my tenant told that within the month they moved in there wasn't enough hot water and they needed to boil water to shower. (obviously they neglect to report the problem because they are not complainers).
The restoration company isolated both bathroom and bedroom and they will take about three months to complete the repairs. The tenant is complaining of getting sick and getting headaches, the flu and up to bronchitis due to the mold in the house. And she wants out if the house immediately and fears for her and get family health.
My tenant is asking to brake the lease, and to forgive any penalties, which I'm okay, but she wants me to pay her one and a half month worth of the rents money, plus the moving truck cost and to pay $300 for her new bed..LOL..
what is the normal protocol for this type of situation? What I'm actually obligated to do for my tenant?
Your comments are appreciated..thanks

Have you filed with your insurance company on this?

I have filled a claim and foremost Co. denied, due to the policy having an exclusion and not covering seepage of water for long period of time whether weeks or months. Only cover sudden leaks our accidental leaks. The insurance feels due to the large and extreme amount of mold, the leak has been going for months or perhaps years.
