Damp & Mould
There has been a lot of coverage in the media recently regarding damp and mould issues in rented homes and the failure of landlords to tackle the problem. There has been a particularly harrowing case of a young child’s death linked to living in a damp home and other cases of tenants living in unacceptable conditions.
