There are Mold inspection companies in the area, however as listed below generally most properties are not tested prior to a accepted offer, inspections are done after acceptance.

in addition to Eric's comments, there is an addendum (addedum A) that can be added to an Offer to Purchase that would allow you to hire a professional to test for mold prior to closing. Whether a bank would accept an Offer with this type of contingency would depend on the overall Offer and the guidelines of this particular bank. I also looked back to when the property was listed 5 years ago and there were some disclosures made by the seller at that time; none referenced mold.

this home is a foreclosure so even if the bank did check it they will still have you sign several documents agreeing that you are buying the house in as-is condition with no guarantees or warranties as to it's condition. the bank most likely did not check it for mold in the attic or walls.
