Can a landlord legally rent with the option to buy, sell or even lease without disclosing black mold?

Question Details: I was in a rent with option to buy property. I kept getting sick and so was my girlfriend and as I was getting ready to remodel the basement, I moved some paneling that was on the wall and the inside was covered in black mold about knee high all throughout the basement walls. So I moved out and now he's threatening me and that I owe for rent and the water bill for the 2 months after I moved out.
