  1. So we have damp on an inside wall ( solid stone / limestone rendered ). And the window above the area something is going on under the cill. Can any one tell, just by looking at the attached picture, what is going on here?
  2. Good morning everyone, I have recently purchased an old 1930's 2 bedroom terrace property near Sheffield where a small damp problem was highlighted in the survey. There was rising damp on 2 of the walls in the living room with salts on them both. I got 3 quotes for damp proofing & decided to go for the most expensive quote at 2,500 GBP . He was using a 3 tier system comprising of a 2 coat SBR primer, a 2 coat tanking slurry & finishing off with a lime plaster. The damp proofer told me to wait 2 weeks for the lime plaster to dry before getting the decorator to
  3. Happy New Year to you all. Please can you help me. I know I am a real novice, but I guess we all have to start somewhere. I purchased a 2 bedroom terrace house in the Rotherham area back in July 2019. I still do not have it anywhere near ready to rent out. The main reason was someone I paid 2500 GBP to damp proof it with a tanking slurry ripped me off. The first person ever in 50 years! Anyway they were meant to use a tanking slurry as I had rising damp and all the downstairs walls had high levels of moisture in them. After completion the plaster began to crack and a
  4. Hi guys/girls, I have recently had a mortgage valuation carried out on one of my properties close to St. Helens, Merseyside. Unfortunately the news was not good and they found possible timber decay, wall tie failure and indication of dampness. Which to be honest has completely bind sided me. Has anyone had any good or bad experience's with damp specialist in the North West particularly in the Merseyside area? Any help would be great fully received. Cheers, Darren
  5. Morning all, I was wondering if there are any legal complications of a tenant refusing to allow repair works to be done such as re-plastering due to damp (not condensation) from faulty concrete gutters. I have found myself in this situation where my bedroom wall paper has peeled off and the plaster cracked due to damp, which was not helped by the windows being jammed shut. Black mould formed and my landlord refused to do anything about it for 6 months which ran through the cold winter period. They have eventually said they would repair the gutters (I think they just cleared some le
  6. Hi, A property i own has a slight damp issue. No problem, i have obtained a quote to repair, however, my question is on who should pay? The property is leasehold and is 1 of 4 in the same block. Should the "Landlord" of the lease cover the costs of repair? (would this be something the 'service costs' would cover?). And if so, what is the best way to contact them? - via a solicitor or direct to the management company? Thanks! Lee p.s. Post repairs, is there any specific advice on how to properly clean up/refurb the mould that is now visible on the inside of t
  7. Hi Offer accepted on Ground floor flat (out of 2 flats), with a cellar used for storage. We have been going down the process for our first property and had the home buyers report back. There were 12 category 3's in need if urgent repair. 1 was about the boiler not having an up-to-date certificate which is not that bad. The main issues were: DAMP WET ROT BOUNDARY WALL IN GARDEN FALLING APART INADEQUATE SOUND INSULATION BETWEEN DOWNSTAIRS FLAT AND UPSTAIRS. ELECTRICS MAY NOT COMPLY WITH CURRENT STANDARDS AND NEED UPDATING. Damp: External walls, chimney breast, communal en
  8. Hi everyone, newbie here. My tenant has recently reported signs of damp and patches of black mould. It's not too bad yet, and seems to just be due to poor building ventilation. I've been quoted £810 (including VAT) to have the mould patches treated with NVirol mould treatment system (basically just a specialised set of cleaning/repatching stuff) and have a continuous running extract fan installed. This seems a bit steep - having found the cost of the materials on the web, they total about $250, so it's about £550 for labour. Am I being ripped off? I'm also dubious about whether
