Seriously? You expect people to actually answer this without you giving a single clue as to what is causing the mould? It could be any number of things.
Hi. I am a new user. Don't know much.. I was looking at buying a house which has mould in it.. Thought if it is viable to fix the house, i can look for buying.

the ad tells you "weathertightness issues, and the presence of toxic mould"
that means LEAKY BUILDING !!!!
Run, run as far as you can, this is ONLY a job for a gambler and probably a builder who can do a whole bunch of repair work at minimal cost.
this is not just a mould issue, there are structural issues that will cost a fortune (think 150 - 200k) if you are lucky
What about Banks? They would be happy to help or not?

Insurance would be a big issue
If this wasn't a property ridden with weathertightness issues, I would have recommended installing a ventilation system as I have seen them work wonders. Tip from experience is to ask the installer to have the main switch to be hidden so the tenants do not switch it off during tenancy.

Yaigesh, it's pretty clear from your posts on this thread that you're not very experienced in property. Fixing leaky buildings is high-risk and requires that people really, really, know what they're doing. You don't. Stay right away.
People have lost everything they had and committed suicide over leaky buildings. It's very serious stuff. There's a reason it's so cheap. Most experienced property investors wouldn't touch it because they know they haven't got the expertise needed to navigate such dangerous waters.
There is a wikipedia page which discusses leaky homes- google "leaky homes crisis".
sidinz advice above is spot on. I wouldn't go anywhere near that property unless you absolutely know what you're doing.

Most people fix them by employing a building surveyor specialising in weathertightness to asses the remedial work and assist the council in signing it off.
