Default Plumber, Drywaller, or Contractor?

Bedroom adjacent to bathroom has black mold at base of wall. On other side
of the wall is the bathtub/shower.
Whose the right professional for assessing the extent of the water damage
and making necessary repairs?

First stop is a plumber to stop a leak, if there is one. Remove the drywall
yourself to get a visual check. Plumber to repair, then a drywaller or
capable handyman to do the patch.

get a good handyman and he'll handle the whole thing. Need to find out where
the mold came from though.

Is it wet? Are you sure you have a leak? You might not. A handy man
could likely do all. Don't get caught up in all this toxic mold crap. if
someone recommends guys in white suits showing up move on.

Really need to see what's inside the wall. If there's mildew on the bedroom
wall then there may be rot inside the wall.

If there's no leak then there maybe inadequate waterproofing on the bathroom
side or the tub may be improperly levelled.
