Mold in Rental House Creates Concern

AUSTELL, GA --  When the 'For Rent' sign went up at 2912 Pavia Circle in Austell, neighbors were concerned.

"I don't think they really went in and did the strip out," Robert Ledbetter told the Center for Investigative Action. 

Many houses on the street remain gutted and neighbors are concerned that the house that is now up for rent may not be fit to live in. That's why we called the landlord, Kathy Edgerly, to take a look. She told us to go on in; the door was unlocked. We only told her our first name; she never asked for any more information about us.
