What are my rights regarding black mold?

Question Details: I have a rent-to-own agreement with the homeowners. Before moving in or signing a contract, I asked specifically about black mold and they assured me that they had never had an issue with it. I have now lived here for 7 months and not only is there more mold than I can afford to fix but it is obvious that they had tried to cover it up. I have 2 small children and my finance who live here with me and we have all been having symptoms from it. Is what they did legal? I cannot afford to move right away as all of my money has gone to paying them and fixing what I can in the home. I'm worried about staying here as I don't want my family becoming any more ill from the mold.
