    Does anybody know if they had a mold problem? If so, is it all taken care of?My mom wants to purchasing a condo there. I'm worried, not only, because she's elderly heath wise, but she, also, wouldn't be able to take care of all the problems that come with it. If any is found, in her unit, down the road, would the management take care of it all or would she be responsible? I won't be living close, so I wouldn't be able to help with this serious situation. I don't want her to pay a fortune to take care of it, if it was already a problem. I know I should tell her to look for a different place, but isn't this issue a problem with alot of places on the beach? The only reason I know they might have had a problem, is because,when we were visiting, I heard some people talking at the pool,(ok,I was easdropping(?)). I got the impression they lived there. They were talking about how a woman was very sick for months and had to go to the emergency room. I could be wrong, but I'm almost positive they were saying that,afterwards, alot of hidden mold was found in her place I asked the front desk about it, of course,they denied it. I, also, asked a couple of house keepers. They both said they haven't worked here long. They said they've seen a little, but nothing of great concern(not sure about that). But, they, also, were told, by some owners, to keep an eye out for it, because they've had problems in the past & had to pay to take care of it themselves.
