Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I am now reviewing your question and will reply again in a moment.
Does the mould stop you from using all the house?
Do you have a report on the mould and its affect on your health and use of the house?
How long hav you been renting and not been able to use the room?
Have you had discussions and tried to resolve it with the landlord?
It is a copy out to do that.
They should be the ones doing that the landlord will not agree to anything.
Are you wanting to know what you should be seeking?
You have to work out what proportion of the house was affected and could not be used. This can be used to work out the rent that you should be refunded because you could not live in that part of it.
A report would assist as evidence for this.
You health issues you can claim costs. If you have not lost anything there is no compensation.
If you are casual and lost pay then you claim the loss of wages. As a full timer you were paid sick leave. You can seek this but have to give it to your employer to reinstate your sick days.
You can also claim medicine you paid for.
This is how you calculate it.
I assume this was not worked out and set out in your claim?
So it was not fit for accomodation?
Do you have a report to that effect?
If it was uninhabitable you claim all the rent you paid back.
If they refuse you have to go back to VCAT and prove it all
Here is a link that explains all compensation in Victoria
You need medical evidence about the old injury and the issue caused by the mould and that the landlord did nothing.
Before you ask for a sum you get the evidence.
It appears you do not have the evidence of your losses yet.
You have a good case just get the evidence before you put in your claim to them and then go back to VCAT
This is why VCAT has done this they dont know what your claim is and only addressed the cancelation of the lease.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for using Justanswer and I look forward to assist in the future as required.
Your doctor has to give evidence on your pas injury and how the mould has made it worse and you cannot work because of this.
all of that has to be assessed and a report be provided.
You need detailed medical reports.
You cannot just claim the tribunals wont give anything unless they have the medical evidence.
It appears it maybe a larger claim and you may have to get solicitors to assist.
Contact Maurice blackburn or Shine lawyers and see if they will act on a no win no fee basis.
You are very welcome and all the best
