Don't forget the asbestos and lead paint threats if you decide to demo. Have to check first and then there is the disposal, this can add $$$$.
You can't solve you're problems with the same level of thinking that created the problems.

That would be reason enough not to demo right there.

Re: Drywal And Lathe And Plaster?

What is more expensive the job or the call back...it's a very old home..that means (no Doubt) mold is there...demo is the way to go...let them know...the most important thing is safety...green rock is the way to go...and if you tell them about the safety issue...price won't matter...home depot/lowes carrys a self testing kit for toxic mold (you don't even have to plunge into the exsisting walls)...start there before any quote...this maybe a remodel you don't want to tackle...after the green light...work to make that bathroom last another hundered years...
